Maryland v. Kulbicki, 14-848

In a petition for postconviction relief from first-degree murder conviction, claiming that defendant's defense attorneys were ineffective for failing to question the legitimacy of Comparative Bullet Lead Analysis (CBLA), the Court of Appeals of Maryland's judgment, that defendant's defense attorneys were unconstitutionally ineffective, is reversed where the trial counsel did not provide deficient performance when they failed to uncover a 1991 report and to use the report's so-called methodological flaw against an FBI agent who testified about the CBLA on cross-examination.
