Holding: Because the Kentucky Supreme Court’s rejection of respondent’s Fifth Amendment claim was not objectively unreasonable, the Sixth Circuit erred in granting the writ of habeas.
Judgment: Reversed and remanded, 6-3, in an opinion by Justice Scalia on April 23, 2014. Justice Breyer filed a dissenting opinion, in which Justice Ginsburg and Justice Sotomayor joined.

Today at SCOTUS: It's the opening day of the 2022-23 term. At 9:30 a.m. EDT, the court will issue orders, which may include cert grants from last week's "long conference." Then, at 10, the court will hear two arguments as Ketanji Brown Jackson takes the bench for the first time.

Today at SCOTUS: The investiture of Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first Black woman to serve as a justice. Jackson was sworn in over the summer, so the investiture is purely ceremonial. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris reportedly are expected to attend the invite-only event at the court.
