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.
