Hardy v. Cross

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
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.
