Sherwood v. Prelesnik, No. 08-1019

By FindLaw Staff on September 03, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a criminal sexual conduct habeas matter, dismissal of a habeas petition as barred by the one-year statute of limitations in 28 U.S.C. section 2244(d) is reversed where: 1) a timely motion for rehearing in a state supreme court on a post-conviction appeal tolls the time for a habeas petition under 28 U.S.C. section 2244(d); and 2) cases pending when the Supreme Court overruled prior circuit precedent in Lawrence v. Florida, 127 S. Ct. 1079 (2007), are entitled to equitable tolling.
