Habeas Corpus Resource Center v. DOJ, No. 14-16928 [March 23, 2016]

Habeas Corpus Resource Center v. DOJ

The Court reversed the district court’s decision on summary judgment and remanded with instructions to dismiss finding that the plaintiffs “did not have standing to bring this action based on their theory of direct injury. The plaintiff had challenged Arizona’s regulations for the “Fast-tracking” of capital habeas petitioners. Furthermore, the court declined to grant a limited remand as the Attorney General has not yet made any certification decisions [based on the Arizona regulations] and thus the challenges to the procedures and criteria set forth in the regulations are not yet ripe for review.
