11-845 6th Cir. Not Argued Jun 11, 2012 TBD Per Curiam OT 2011

Holding: The Sixth Circuit’s decision setting aside two twenty-nine-year-old murder convictions is reversed because it is a textbook example of the use of federal habeas corpus review to second-guess the reasonable decisions of state courts, which the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996 (AEDPA) proscribes.

Judgment: Reversed in a per curiam opinion on June 11, 2012.
