Roper v. Weaver
No. 06-313
Title:
    Don Roper, Superintendent, Potosi Correctional Center v. William Weaver

Subject:

Question:
  • Since this court has neither held a prosecutor's penalty phase closing argument to violate due process, nor articulated, in response to a penalty phase claim, what the standard of error and prejudice would be, does a court of appeals exceed its authority under 28 U.S.C. section 2254(d)(l) by overturning a capital sentence on the ground that the prosecutor's penalty phase closing argument was "unfairly inflammatory?"
