Federal Habeas Corpus: An Abridged Sketch

Federal Habeas Corpus: An Abridged Sketch

Date: April 28, 2006
Creator: Doyle, Charles
Description: This report discusses federal habeas corpus, which is a procedure under which a federal court may review the legality of an individual’s incarceration. It is most often invoked after conviction and the exhaustion of the ordinary means of appeal. It is at once the last refuge of scoundrels and the last hope of the innocent. It is an intricate weave of statute and case law whose reach has flowed and ebbed over time.
