SCOTUS Habeas Case

From BNA.com:  The U.S. Supreme Court April 25 decided one case related to the criminal justice system.  In Day v. McDonough, No. 04-1324, the court held that a federal district court has discretion to dismiss a habeas corpus petition sua sponte for failing to comply with the one-year statute of limitations set by the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act even if the state has answered the petition without contesting the issue of timeliness.
