12-794 6th Cir. Dec 11, 2013
Tr.Aud.
Apr 23, 2014 6-3 Scalia OT 2013

Holding: Because the Kentucky Supreme Court’s rejection of respondent’s Fifth Amendment claim was not objectively unreasonable, the Sixth Circuit erred in granting the writ of habeas.

Judgment: Reversed and remanded, 6-3, in an opinion by Justice Scalia on April 23, 2014. Justice Breyer filed a dissenting opinion, in which Justice Ginsburg and Justice Sotomayor joined.
