Criminal Practice – Habeas Corpus – Writ Reversed – N.C. Death-Row Defendant – Constitutional – Ineffective Assistance Claim — Brady Evidence – Mental Retardation (access required)

Branker The 4th Circuit reverses a district court’s issuance of a habeas writ to a North Carolina death-row defendant, as the proper review by the federal court indicates the conviction cannot be overturned for the claimed errors of ineffective assistance of counsel, withholding of exculpatory evidence or proof of petitioner’s mental retardation.
