In a capital habeas proceeding, the denial of Petitioner’s habeas petition is reversed where the state courts’ rejection of Petitioner’s Brady v. Maryland claim did not rest on a ground that barred federal review, and the lower courts failed to adequately consider whether the allegedly withheld evidence was material to Petitioner’s sentence.

WSGR Term Sheet Generator

Website: Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati –
Term Sheet Generator

This tool will generate a venture financing term sheet based on your responses to an online questionnaire. It also has an informational component, with basic tutorials and annotations on financing terms. This term sheet generator is a modified version of a tool that they use internally, which comprises one part of a suite of document automation tools that they use to generate start-up and venture financing-related documents.

Because it has been designed as a generic tool that takes into account a number of options, this version of the term sheet generator is fairly expansive and includes significantly more detail than would likely be found in a customized application.


This is the program mentioned by Richard Susskind in his recent presentation at Harvard.
