Don't Cry for me Habeas Corpus. The First Circuit has upheld the limitations placed on habeas by statute against constitutional challenge in a case you can read here. The opinion states: "Petitioner's arguments are based not so much on the statutory text of § 2254(d) as on the Supreme Court's binding interpretation of that text in Williams v. Taylor as to the meaning of three key terms in the statute: "clearly established," "contrary to," and "unreasonable application.""
