Issues: (1) Whether a state court unreasonably applied this court's cases under Section 2254(d)(1) when it held that a misplaced adverb in one jury instruction on state law did not violate federal due process; and (2) whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit properly held that the alleged instructional error was harmful and that Davis v. Ayala was irrelevant to the harmless-error inquiry.
