Lambert v. Workman, No. 09-5108

By FindLaw Staff on February 12, 2010 11:46 AM

In a capital habeas matter, a denial of the habeas petition is affirmed where: 1) there was no Supreme Court authority clearly establishing the proper reconciliation of the competing double-jeopardy principles at issue, which was fatal to his claim; and 2) it was neither arbitrary nor capricious for a state court of appeals to retain and exercise its customary appellate authority to correct the trial court's error in the event the trial court failed to take the required action.
