  • Included is a summary of Beard v. Kindler, 2009 U.S. LEXIS 8944 (December 8, 2009), in which the Supreme Court vacated and remanded a decision of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit on the grounds that a discretionary state procedural rule such as Pennsylvania's fugitive forfeiture rule could serve as an adequate ground to bar federal habeas review.

  • Also included is a summary of Michigan v. Fisher, 2009 U.S. LEXIS 8773 (December 7, 2009), in which the Supreme Court reversed a Michigan Court of Appeals decision, holding that the emergency aid exception to the Fourth Amendment's warrant requirement was reasonably invoked by police officers.
