Gentry v. Sevier, 08-3574
District court's denial of defendant's habeas petition based on a claim of ineffective assistance of counsel is reversed as the Court of Appeals of Indiana unreasonably applied federal law when it determined that the evidence concerning the search of a wheelbarrow was admissible and that defendant's counsel's performance did not fall below an objective standard of reasonableness.
