Name: Jennings v. Woodford
Case #: 00-99008
Court: US Court of Appeals
District 9 Cir
Opinion Date: 05/10/2002
Subsequent History: None

Trial counsel was ineffective in this capital case by failing to investigate or present mental health defenses when trial counsel knew the defendant was a long-term methamphetamine addict, with a long history of intentionally injuring himself and exacerbating the wound by pouring foreign liquids into them, who had attempted suicide, and whose ex-wife opined he was “crazy.”
