Ronald EisenbergOn December 6, 2011, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Martel v. Clair. The question in this case is whether a state prisoner on death row is entitled to replace his court-appointed attorney with a new court-appointed attorney on the grounds that--according to the prisoner--the first court-appointed attorney failed to pursue potentially important evidence relating to prisoner’s case.

To discuss the case, we have Ronald Eisenberg, who is the Deputy District Attorney for the Law Division at the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office.
