      CRIMINAL LAW & PROCEDURE, HABEAS CORPUS
      Dorsey v. Quarterman, No. 06-70039

      Denial of petition for habeas corpus is affirmed where:

      1) one or more jurors' exposure to extraneous material
      was harmless error;

      2) a Batson claim relating to juror was procedurally
      barred since the state court has held that record based
      claims not raised on direct appeal will not be
      considered in habeas proceedings; and

      3) even if the court erred in denying defendant's juror
      challenges for cause, there was no constitutional
      violation because the jurors were removed from the jury
      by his use of peremptory challenges and he has not
      alleged that the jury that sat in his capital murder
      trial was not impartial.

        New Orleans hospitals that survived
        Hurricane Katrina underwent

        do more with less, such as performing
        more surgeries with fewer staff.
        However, they also saw revenue decline
        due to an increase in uninsured patients,
        a report says.

        As a burn nurse, Jeanne Hahne was

        she wore to prevent infection. It was
        30 years in the making, but Hahne, who
        works at California Pacific Medical
