Intriguing little Ninth Circuit ruling rejecting various challenges to denial of paroleFor anyone too quick to assume that defendants always win in the Ninth Circuit with novel constitutional claims, consider checking out today's panel ruling in Moor v. Palmer, No. 07-16045 (9th Cir. Apr. 29, 2010) (available here). In Moor, a Ninth Circuit panel rejects a variety of intriguing constitutional complaints from a Nevada state prison complaining in a habeas petition about the denial of his parole. I do not think the ruling breaks any significant new jurisprudential ground, but it does effectively review the array of (often not successful) constitutional claims that can be raised in this setting.
