Johnson v. Hulett, No. 06-2458

By FindLaw Staff on July 27, 2009 3:25 PM

District court's denial of plaintiff's petition for habeas corpus in a murder case is affirmed where the court properly held that the claims plaintiff  raised in her habeas petition were procedurally defaulted as the petition did not raise any of the three theories of ineffective assistance of counsel she presented to the state appellate court and thus could not be asserted on appeal.
