Newman v Wengler, No. 13-36185 [June 16, 2015]

Newman v. Wengler

The Court holds that the Stone v. Powell doctrine survived the enactment of the AEDPA. Therefore, where the state provided an opportunity for full and fair litigation of a Fourth Amendment claim, a state prisoner may not be granted federal habeas relief on the ground that evidence was obtained in an unconstitutional search or seizure was introduced at trial.
