Lambert v. Davis, 05-2610

Petition for habeas corpus is denied where: 1) a recent Indiana Supreme Court decision did not apply to the facts of defendant's case; 2) revisions to death penalty statute could have been used for arguments in first petition; 3) the claim did not meet requirements for bringing a successive petition; and 4) habeas courts lack jurisdiction over state supreme court interpretations of state law.
