GRILLETTE v. WARDEN, WINN CORR. CTR., 02-30937

Court ruled defendant's state post-conviction relief proceedings remained "pending," and thereby tolled the statute of limitations during this period, rendering his 28 U.S.C. Section 2254 application timely. The lower court erred in dismissing the application as time-barred.
