State v. Canfield, 252 N.J. 497 (2023)


Raymond Brown argued before the New Jersey Supreme Court on behalf of amicus curiae ACDL-NJ that the trial court should have instructed the jury in a murder case on the lesser included offense of passion/provocation manslaughter, which the defense did not request. The Court disagreed, affirming and modifying the Appellate Division's decision. The Court ultimately found that the trial court's failure to issue this instruction was not plain error. CJ Griffin co-authored the brief.
