Bostick v. Stevenson, No. 08-6331

By FindLaw Staff on December 18, 2009 7:47 AM

In habeas proceedings involving claims of ineffective assistance of counsel, summary judgment against petitioner is reversed and remanded where: 1) the state procedural ground under which the district court found his claim to have been procedurally defaulted was not consistently applied at the time of his state proceedings; and 2) the performance of defendant's trial counsel was constitutionally deficient because counsel did not consult with defendant about an appeal following his conviction.
