Shoop v. Hill

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
18-56 6th Cir. Not Argued Jan 7, 2019 n/a Per Curiam OT 2018

Holding: Because Danny Hill’s intellectual disability claim must be evaluated based solely on holdings of the Supreme Court that were clearly established at the time the state-court decisions were rendered, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit’s reliance on Moore v. Texas -- which was handed down much later -- was plainly improper.

Judgment: Vacated and remanded in a per curiam opinion on January 7, 2019.
