Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a prosecution for first-degree intentional murder as a party to a crime, district court's denial of defendant's petition for habeas relief is affirmed over claims that: 1) a state appellate court's application of Strickland to the facts of petitioner's case was unreasonable because the court applied the wrong standard under Wisconsin law to determine whether he was entitled to a felony-murder instruction; and 2) a state appellate court's factual determination that counsel had discussed a felony-murder instruction with him was unreasonable.
