No. 01-7662 Miller-El v. Cockrell

I think the court will see this case as about whether a state court reviewing a petition for habeas corpus must consider defendant's evidence of the practice and procedure of discriminatory use of peremptory challenges, where the court has found a race-neutral basis for each of the jurors actually excluded. Phrased thusly, I think the court will AFFIRM.

I know this is rather conclusory, but the argument is tomorrow and I am otherwise pretty busy today.
