McAleese v. Brennan, 04-1439

Denial of a habeas petition brought by a prisoner convicted of third-degree murder of his ex-wife as time-barred is affirmed over a primary argument that a parole board's failure to turn over documents opposing petitioner's release, which a district attorney and a judge had submitted to it, tolled the limitations period under the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996 (AEDPA) to such an extent that the petition was timely.
