Souter's opinion for the Court held that a defendant attempting to reverse his conviction due to a Fed. R. Crim. P. 11 violation must show a reasonable probability that, but for the trial court's error in failing to advise him his guilty plea could not be withdrawn, he would not have entered the plea. Justice Antonin Scalia concurred in the judgment but disagreed with Souter's standard.
