Jordan Steiker, Judge Robert M. Parker Chair in Law and codirector of the Law School’s Capital Punishment Center, has written an analysis of the Supreme Court’s opinion in McQuiggin v. Perkins, which was published May 28, 2013.

Steiker writes the case is important “in holding that the Court’s power to protect potentially innocent inmates who suffer a constitutional violation remains intact notwithstanding new congressional rules governing the federal habeas forum.”

The full text of Steiker’s opinion analysis is available at SCOTUSBlog.
