Tenth Circuit Breviaries

The Tenth Circuit did not publish any decisions in any direct criminal appeals last week.

Habeas practitioners will want to read Davis v. Sharp, affirming the denial of 28 U.S.C. 2254 relief to an Oklahoma state capital defendant. Sharp discusses anticipatory procedural bars, procedural default, and defense counsel's obligations with respect to investigating and presenting mental-health claims at trial.
