Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
13-85 11th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2013

Issue: Whether, when a state court cites and applies the correct standard from Batson v. Kentucky for assessing whether a habeas petitioner has established discrimination in jury selection, the state court’s failure to expressly address “all relevant circumstances” in a written opinion means that the state court’s decision is “unreasonable” and entitled to no deference under the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act.
