  • Per Curiam
In the 2013 case of Chaidez v. U.S., the U.S. Supreme Court concluded that it announced a new rule in its 2010 decision in Padilla v. Kentucky, concerning the responsibility of competent counsel to inform a client whether a plea carries a risk of deportation and, consequently, "defendants whose convictions became final prior to Padilla therefore cannot benefit from its holding."
