Corcoran v. Levenhagen, No. 07-2093

By FindLaw Staff on January 28, 2010 8:34 AM

On remand from reversal of district court's grant of habeas relief on defendant's Sixth Amendment claim, district court's conditional grant of defendant's petition for a writ of habeas corpus is affirmed where: 1) defendant's challenge to the state trial court's sentencing process has obvious merit, as the trial court did not consider non-statutory aggravators in the balancing process used to determine defendant's death sentence, obviously in error; and 2) defendant's habeas claims actually before the court are meritless and the claims defendant declined to pursue are waived.
