8 January 2008
J. Bishop Grewell, an Associate in the Chicago Office, is representing David Arredondo (David Arredondo v. William Pollard, Docket No. 07-2777) who is appealing the denial of his § 2254 habeas petition by the Eastern District of Wisconsin. Mr. Arredondo is a 42-year-old prisoner in the custody of the state of Wisconsin. His appeal centers on the state trial judge's refusal to let Mr. Arredondo testify on his own behalf at his 1998 jury trial despite his request to do so before either closing arguments or jury instructions had been presented.
