|11-74||7th Cir.||Not Argued||Dec 12, 2011||9-0||Per Curiam||OT 2011|
Holding: The lower court’s ruling overturning a decision of an Illinois state court was inconsistent with the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996 (AEDPA), 28 U.S.C. § 2254, which “imposes a highly deferential standard for evaluating state-court rulings and demands that state-court decisions be given the benefit of the doubt.”
Judgment: Summarily reversed in a per curiam opinion on December 12, 2011.
