|08-10495||7th Cir.||Not Argued||Oct 20, 2009||TBD||Per Curiam||OT 2009|
Holding: A death row inmate challenged his death sentence in district court, giving five arguments for the reconsideration of the sentence. The district court accepted one and did not resolve the others. The Supreme Court held that an appeals court subsequently erred when it reinstated the death sentence upon reversing the district court on the single ground considered, without evaluating any of the other grounds raised by the defendant.
Judgment: Vacated and remanded in a per curiam opinion on October 20, 2009.
