Summary

Editor’s note: see subsequent history. Appellant’s court appointed public defender’s conflict of interest, which was based on her one night romantic relationship with the prosecutor, did not require a reversal because there was nothing in the record which demonstrated that the conflict in any way affected the course of the proceedings or adversely affected her representation of Summerlin.
