Dennis v. Penn. Dep't of Corrections, 13-9003

In a habeas corpus action challenging petitioner's first-degree murder conviction, the district court's grant of the petition is affirmed where the Pennsylvania Supreme Court unreasonably applied Brady v. Maryland, 373 U.S. 83 (1963), in upholding the suppression of a receipt corroborating defendant's alibi, inconsistent statements by the Commonwealth's key eyewitness, and documents indicating a third party committed the crime.
