Carvajal v. Artus, 09-0826

Appeal from the denial of an application for a writ of habeas corpus, on grounds that petitioner's prosecution in New York for the unlawful possession of a controlled substance exceeded New York's criminal territorial jurisdiction (because both petitioner and the drugs that formed the basis for the prosecution were found in California) and therefore violated his federal constitutional rights, is dismissed on the ground that petitioner's federal constitutional claim is procedurally defaulted.
