Maryland v Kulbicki

Kulbicki’s murder conviction was reversed by the Maryland Court of Appeals based on a finding of ineffective assistance of counsel. The Court summarily reversed holding that reasonable trial counsel at the time of Kulbicki’s trial would not have been aware of a study which both concluded a technique of comparing bullets was reliable and stated some anomalies in the data, would not have predicted the ultimate rejection of that technique based on that article and thus Kulbicki’s counsel did perform deficiently in not attacking the technique at trial.
