Wilson v. Corcoran

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
10-91 7th Cir. Not Argued Nov 8, 2010 TBD Per Curiam OT 2010
 
Share:

Holding: Federal habeas relief is available only to cure violations of a state defendant's rights under the federal law. As a result, the court of appeals erred in granting federal habeas relief to a state capital defendant simply because the federal court believed that the state courts had misapplied state law in sentencing the defendant to death.

Plain English Summary:

Judgment: Vacated and remanded in a per curiam opinion on November 8, 2010.
