Coleman v. Superintendent — habeas corpus — affirmance — Hardiman
The Third Circuit today affirmed a denial of habeas corpus relief, holding that the petitioner failed to make a strong enough showing of a miscarriage of justice to excuse the untimeliness of his petition. The court rejected Coleman’s argument that he could satisfy the miscarriage-of-justice standard without proving his innocence.
Joining Hardiman were McKee and Rendell. The case was decided without oral argument.
