NOTE: Counsel presenting argument should check in at Room 223, East Courtroom, of the John Minor Wisdom United States Court of Appeals Building, 600 Camp Street, New Orleans, Louisiana, between 02:30 and 02:45 PM. Thirty (30) minutes of argument time per side has been authorized. While you are free to present argument on any issues that have been properly raised, the court is particularly interested in hearing argument on: the application of Penry v. Lynaugh, 492 U.S. 302 (1989), to this case; the retroactivity argument; and the applicability, if any, of Pierce v. Thaler, 604 F.3d 197 (5th Cir. 2010).
