Millemann surveys the legal remedies that convicted persons in Maryland have, focuses on the remedies provided by the Uniform Post Conviction Procedures Act, identifies several problems with the application of the Act - including the courts' overuse of the waiver provisions and failures to more fully develop and use exceptions to waiver, and argues that state courts have a special responsibility to protect the rights of prisoners given the general disengagement by federal courts.
