Wyoming State Post-Conviction and the Federal Anti-Terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act (AEDPA) (April 12, 2012)

Date: 04/12/2012

Featuring: Keith Goody

AEDPA is filled with traps for the unwary.  A lawyer handling a state post-conviction action must be fully informed on the intricacies of federal habeas corpus to make certain that the client's rights to federal habeas are not compromised.
