The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Edwards v. Vannoy. The case stems from a 2020 Supreme Court ruling in Ramos v. Louisiana establishing the right to unanimous jury trials for defendants in federal and state courts and whether this ruling can apply retroactively to other cases. The petitioner, Thedrick Edwards, was convicted for a host of violent crimes including rape and kidnapping by a non-unanimous Louisiana jury. At the time of trial, Louisiana was one of two states that did not require unanimous jury verdicts for convictions. Under Louisiana law, only 10 out of 12 jurors are needed in order to convict. Mr. Edwards appealed his case first in the state court system, followed by the lower federal courts, and then the nation’s highest court. close
