US v. Ortiz-Vega , 14-1693

In an ineffective assistance of counsel claim arising from a drug distribution conspiracy case, in which defendant claimed that lack of communication from his initial state-appointed attorney resulted in the loss of a better plea deal than the one he eventually accepted, the trial court's decision is reversed and remanded where it was error to delay ruling on the merits of the claims until sentencing.
