Ferguson v. Sec'y. for the Dep't of Corrs., No. 05-13595
In a capital habeas matter, denial of the petition is affirmed where: 1) defense counsel was not ineffective during the penalty phase because the aggravating circumstances far outweighed any mitigating factors, even taking into account the evidence that counsel failed to uncover; and 2) any infirmities in the trial court's initial jury instructions would have been cured by the court's subsequent statement.
