Supreme Court Grants Cert. Today in Habeas Case

Supreme_court_1 According to U.S. Law Week, The U.S. Supreme Court today granted review today in Dodd v. United States, No. 04-5286.  The question presented: "Does the one-year limitations period in 28 U.S.C. § 2255 ¶ 6(3) for a prisoner seeking to vacate, set aside, or correct a sentence on the basis of a constitutional right newly established by the Supreme Court begin to run on the date when the Supreme Court recognizes the new right or on the date when either the Supreme Court or controlling federal circuit court holds that the right applies retroactively to cases on collateral review?"  [Mark Godsey]
