Doody v. Schriro (9th Cir. - Nov. 20, 2008)

Rarely -- and I mean, rarely -- do you have a court find that a confession was constitutionally involuntary. It's even more rare to make such a finding on federal habeas review, especially post-AEDPA. And it's rarer still for such a finding to be made in an extremely high-profile murder case.

But it all happens here.
