BEARD v. BANKS, 02-1603

Concerning a capital prisoner's habeas petition, the Court found its decision in Mills v. Maryland, 486 U.S. 367, announced a new rule of constitutional law which did not fall under the Teague exception, and therefore could not be applied retroactively by the habeas petitioner.
