McDaniel v. Brown, No. 08-559

By FindLaw Staff on January 11, 2010 4:46 PM

In habeas proceedings arising from a rape conviction, a circuit court of appeals' order affirming the grant of petitioner's habeas petition is reversed and remanded where: 1) the court of appeals' analysis failed to preserve the factfinder's role as weigher of the evidence by reviewing all of the evidence in the light most favorable to the prosecution, and it erred in finding a state court's resolution of petitioner's claim to be objectively unreasonable; and 2) petitioner forfeited his claim that a prosecution expert incorrectly described the statistical implications of certain DNA evidence.
