Contreras v. Artus, 13-1117

Dismissal of habeas petition is affirmed over claims that the state court violated petitioner's right to be present during critical stages of trial and right to effective assistance of counsel by: 1) holding a closed hearing in petitioner's absence to consider the disclosability and admissibility of certain evidence; and 2) ordering defense counsel not to disclose that evidence to petitioner during the trial.
