Krista A. Dolan has posted The Section 2254 Trinity: How the Supreme Court's Decisions in Richter, Pinholster, and Greene Have Interpreted Federal Review Into Near Nonexistence (Criminal Law Brief (American University), 2013) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
This paper analyzes the impact that the Supreme Court’s recent decisions in Harrington v. Richter, Cullen v. Pinholster, and Greene v. Fisher have had on federal review of state prisoners’ petitions for habeas corpus under Section 2254(d)(1) of the Anti-Terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act. The paper discusses the impact of each case individually, as well as the collective impact on federal review for state prisoners.
