Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a child molestation prosecution, dismissal of petitioner's habeas petition as untimely is reversed where the Eighth Circuit's intervening decision in Riddle v. Kemna, 523 F.3d 850 (8th Cir. 2008), overruling a previous decision regarding the calculation of the statute of limitations for habeas petitions from Missouri, satisfied the "extraordinary circumstance" requirement for equitable tolling.
