Petition of the day

The petition of the day is:


Issue: Whether it is fundamentally unfair and violates the due process clause of the 14th Amendment to require a capital habeas petitioner to bring a successive state habeas petition within six months of the discovery of previously unproduced evidence pursuant to Alabama Rule of Criminal Procedure 32.2(c), when Alabama Code § 6-5-440 would have simultaneously barred such a suit.
