Veteran Advocates, Newcomers to Argue in High Court
On Wednesday, October 16, in the case Kansas v. Cheever, that state’s attorney general Derek Schmidt, joined by Nicole Saharsky, an assistant to the U.S. solicitor general, will be opposed by former acting SG Neal Katyal. Katyal, now with Hogan Lovells, is representing defendant Scott Cheever on a pro bono basis.
At issue in the case is the extent to which evidence from a court-ordered mental evaluation can be used by the prosecutor against the defendant without running afoul of the Firth Amendment bar against compelled self-incrimination.
