The Supreme Court of the United States granted review in one case this morning:

Chaidez v. United States, No. 11-820: In Padilla v. Kentucky, 130 S. Ct. 1473 (2010), the Court held that criminal defendants receive ineffective assistance of counsel under the Sixth Amendment when their attorneys fail to advise them that pleading guilty to an offense will subject them to deportation. The question presented here is whether Padilla applies to persons whose convictions became final before its announcement.
