why was this even an issue?

Supreme Court Sides with Inmate Whose Lawyer Slept, where a Texas man convicted of murder was granted a new trial instead of being executed because his attorney slept during his trial. What was the matter with the trial judge - was he or she sleeping as well? Or drunk? Why did the state even bother to appeal? Of course, this is Texas, where they get mighty pissed if they CAN'T execute anybody they want to -- gosh darn, they actually might even have to obey the LAW!
