Robertson v. Klem, No. 07-2581

By FindLaw Staff on August 28, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In habeas proceedings arising from petitioner's conviction of two counts of conspiracy to commit murder, district court's judgment is reversed where the evidence was insufficient to allow a rational trier of fact to find defendant participated in two conspiracies and the court's contrary conclusion was an unreasonable application of clearly established Supreme Court precedent, In re Winship, 397 U.S. 358 (1970).
