Does the Attorney General have any authority to assert that a defendant waived or invited any error?

California, United States of America


The following excerpt is from People v. Priolo, H039045 (Cal. App. 2014):

The Attorney General contends that defendant waived or invited any error. "[T]he doctrine of invited error operates to estop a party from asserting an error when the party's own conduct has induced its commission [citation], and from claiming to have been denied a fair trial by circumstances of the party's own making [citation]." (People v. Lang (1989) 49 Cal.3d 991, 1031-1032.)
