Greene v. Fisher, 10-637

In a petition for review of a judgment of the appeals court upholding a denial of habeas relief under the AEDPA and concerning whether the retroactive application of Gray v. Maryland, 523 U.S. 185, to an AEDPA petition, judgment is affirmed where the AEDPA's “backward-looking language requires an examination of the state-court decision at the time it was made," so that Gray was not "clearly established Federal law" against which to measure the state-court decision, as the decision predated Gray by nearly three months.
