The Michigan Supreme Court won’t grant a new trial to a Detroit-area man who had just 15 minutes to discuss strategy with his lawyer on the night before trial. In a two-sentence order released Friday, the court said it won’t upset a decision by the appeals court. Justice Mary Beth Kelly dissented, saying Ashly Smith’s attorney, Susan Reed, failed to conduct a reasonable investigation into his alibi. Kelly said Reed had very little contact with Smith. Reed said she had alibi witnesses lined up but didn’t use them. She believed the prosecutor had a weak case. From The Associated Press.
