“Counsel has a duty to make reasonable investigations or to make a reasonable decision that makes particular investigations unnecessary”. Kimmelman v. Morrison, 477 U.S. 365, 106 S. CT 2574 (1986). However, “a decision not to investigate cannot be deemed reasonable if it is uninformed.” Fisher v. Gibson, 282 F. 3d 1283 (10th Cir. 2002).
