Foxworth v. St. Amand, No. 08-1751

By FindLaw Staff on June 29, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

District court's grant of habeas relief is reversed in part, jurisdiction is retained, and question of state law is certified to the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court where: 1) the witness's eyewitness testimony together with the other evidence of record could reasonably comprise a constitutionally adequate foundation for defendant's ensuing conviction; and 2) the question of whether allowing a witness's redacted statement into evidence violated plaintiff's Sixth Amendment confrontation rights depends on whether the petitioner's conviction became final in 1996 or 2002, and is certified to the state supreme court to decide.
