Hunter v. Ferrell, No. 08-16597
In habeas proceedings arising from a murder and robbery prosecution, dismissal of the habeas petition as untimely is vacated where petitioner's evidence, while not sufficient to establish definitively that the filing deadline should be equitably tolled, was sufficient to raise a factual issue as to whether a causal connection existed between his mental impairment and his ability to file a timely petition.
