Delo v. Stokes/Dissent Stevens
|←Delo v. Stokes/Opinion of the Court||Delo v. Stokes by
Justice STEVENS, with whom Justice BLACKMUN joins, dissenting.
In my opinion both the District Court and the Court of Appeals-particularly when acting en banc-are in a far better position than this Court to determine whether a successive petition for habeas corpus constitutes an abuse of the writ. Accordingly, I respectfully dissent from the Court's summary disposition of the application to vacate the stay entered by the District Court and upheld by the Court of Appeals.
