SCOTUS to decide whether its unanimous jury ruling applies retroactively

Edwards v. Vannoy, USSC No. 19-5807, certiorari granted 5/4/20

Question presented:

Does the Supreme Court’s decision in Ramos v. Louisiana, 590 U.S. ___ (2020), apply retroactively to cases on federal collateral review?

Like the holding in Ramos itself, the decision in this case will have direct relevance only to practitioners handling federal habeas review of convictions from Louisiana or Oregon, the two jurisdictions that permitted 10-2 guilty verdicts in criminal trials before Ramos invalidated non-unanimous juries.
