McGee v. Bartow, No. 07-3278

By FindLaw Staff on January 28, 2010 8:36 AM

In defendant's action for habeas relief claiming that his civil commitment as a sexually violent person (SVP) deprives him of his right to due process of law, denial of the writ but issuance of certificate of appealability is affirmed as the diagnoses of two mental health professionals which were constitutionally adequate under existing Supreme Court precedent, and the evidence upon which the diagnoses were based, afforded the Wisconsin committing court an adequate basis, under the Due Process Clause, to order defendant's commitment.
