Ross v. Varano, 12-2083

District court's order tolling the running of the statute of limitations on defendant's habeas corpus petition and granting the petition are affirmed, where equitable tolling of the running of the statute was warranted because defendant had been reasonably diligent in pursuing his state court appellate remedies but that extraordinary circumstances beyond his control frustrated this attempt to file his direct appeal.
