Jenkins v. Hutton

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
16-1116 6th Cir. Not Argued Jun 19, 2017 n/a Per Curiam OT 2016

Holding: On the facts of this case, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit was wrong to hold that it could review Percy Hutton's claim -- that the trial court violated his due process rights during the penalty phase of his trial -- under the miscarriage-of-justice exception to procedural default.

Judgment: Reversed and remanded in a per curiam opinion on June 19, 2017.
