Panetti v. Quarterman
No. 06-6407
Title:
    Scott Louis Panetti v. Nathaniel Quarterman, Director, Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Correctional Institutions Division

Subject:

    Capital Punishment, Death Penalty, Habeas Corpus, Eighth Amendment, Mental Illness
Questions:
  1. Does the Eighth Amendment permit the execution of a death row inmate who has a factual awareness of the reason for his execution but who, because of severe mental illness, has a delusional belief as to why the state is executing him, and thus does not appreciate that his execution is intended to seek retribution for his capital crime?

  2. Must petitioner's habeas application be dismissed as "second or successive" pursuant to 28 U.S.C. section 2244?
