US Supreme Court issues opinion on limits of habeas review

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
In Smith v. Spisak, the US Supreme Court reverses an order of the 6th Circuit granting habeas relief to a death row inmate.  The Court finds that a decision by the Ohio Supreme Court was not clearly contrary to the Supreme Court's decisions in Mills v. Maryland, which concerned jury unanimity for mitigating circumstances.
