Issue: Whether the Supreme Court’s unanimous holding in Cooper v.
Oklahoma clearly established that
Georgia could not impose the burden of requiring proof
of intellectual disability beyond a reasonable doubt,
particularly when state supreme courts in Indiana,
Tennessee and other states recognized that Cooper
would not allow their states to require a defendant to
prove intellectual disability even by a lower standard of
clear and convincing evidence.
