Wilson v. Sellers

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
16-6855 11th Cir. Oct 30, 2017
Tr.Aud.
TBD TBD TBD OT 2017

Issue: Whether the court's decision in Harrington v. Richter silently abrogates the presumption set forth in Ylst v. Nunnemaker – that a federal court sitting in habeas proceedings should “look through” a summary state court ruling to review the last reasoned decision – as a slim majority of the en banc U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit held in this case, despite the agreement of both parties that the Ylst presumption should continue to apply.
