Bowles v. Inch

Petition for certiorari denied on August 22, 2019
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
19-5672 11th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2019

Issues: (1) Whether a capital defendant’s claim that the Eighth Amendment forbids his execution as he is intellectually disabled becomes viable upon the issuance of a death warrant, therefore exempting the claim from the gatekeeping provisions of 28 U.S.C. Section 2244(b)(2); (2) whether procedural obstacles to the consideration of a claim of intellectual disability must cede to the categorical protections of the Eighth Amendment; and (3) whether the 11th Circuit has a duty to interpret 28 U.S.C. Section 2241 in a way that does not condone unconstitutional executions.
