Lee v. Kemna

Question presented: Was a defendant denied his rights to a fair trial and due process of law when the trial court refused to grant him an overnight continuance to locate his three subpoenaed alibi witnesses who unexpectedly, and for reasons not attributable to the defendant, did not return after a lunch break on the last day of trial?

Bonnie Robin-Vergeer of Public Citizen represented the petitioner on the merits in the Supreme Court. The Court held in favor of the petitioner.
