United States Supreme Court

Kernan v. Cuero, 16-1468

Reversing the Ninth Circuit's Court of Appeals decision which had reversed a court action permitting the State to amend a criminal complaint in which the defendant had pleaded guilty and would have received a substantially lower sentence than the one he got when he pleaded guilty to the amended complaint because no court decision clearly established that a state court must impose the lower sentence that the parties originally expected and the defendant was not entitled to specific performance on the earlier agreement.
