Moss v. Colvin, 15-2272

In a petition for a writ of habeas corpus brought under 28 U.S.C. section 2254, the district court's dismissal of the petition is affirmed where, pursuant to the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996: 1) the New York Court of Appeals' determination that a reviewing court may infer from the record that a trial court considered, as it must, reasonable alternatives to closure was not an unreasonable application of clearly established federal law as determined by the Supreme Court; and 2) the New York Court of Appeals' conclusion that the government established an overriding interest justifying closure was also not an unreasonable application of clearly established federal law as determined by the Supreme Court.
