9th Circuit

ATTORNEYS - Frantz, who represented himself, challenged his exclusion from an in-chambers conference in which his advisory counsel participated and that discussed how the judge should respond to a query from the deliberating jury. The 9th Circuit found that Frantz's Sixth Amendment rights could have been violated by his exclusion from a chambers conference attended by standby counsel, but remands for an evidentiary hearing on several critical questions unanswered by the record.
