Ortiz v. N.Y.S. Parole in Bronx, No. 07-2299

By FindLaw Staff on November 11, 2009 10:35 AM

In a petition for habeas relief from petitioner's convictions for first degree riot and second degree assault under New York law, denial of the petition is affirmed where the New York courts' rejection of petitioner's due process claim and, specifically, his contention that the law did not make it reasonably clear at the relevant time that his conduct was criminal, was not an unreasonable application of clearly established federal law.
