SCOTUS to Consider Padilla Retroactivity: Chaidez v. U.S.

"The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to settle a dispute among lower
courts on whether to give more immigrants the benefit of a ruling that
requires their lawyers to advise them more clearly on what can happen if
they plead guilty to a crime.  At issue in the new case of Chaidez v. United States (11-820) is the potential retroactivity of the Court’s 2010 ruling in Padilla v. Kentucky." – SCOTUSblog, Apr. 30, 2012.
