    (1) actual innocence claim
    (2) whether the defendant's constitutional rights were violated by trial court's refusal to permit defendant to impeach jailhouse informant evidence of bias and motive to lie

    (4) whether trial counsel had a conflict of interest
    (5) whether defendant's constitutional rights were violated by improper comment on his post‐arrest silence
    (6) whether defendant's trial counsel was ineffective for failing to impeach informant, failing to adequately present a self‐defense theory, failing to present an expert witness on the reliability of child witnesses, and failing to object to comments about defendant's post‐arrest silence, among other issues
    (7) claims of racial bias
    (8) fair cross‐section claim

    Ray Dansby v Larry Norris

    U.S. Court of Appeals Case No: 10-1990
    U.S. District Court for the Western District of Arkansas - El Dorado
    [PUBLISHED] [Colloton, Author, with Riley, Chief Judge, and Gruender, Circuit Judge]
    Prisoner case - habeas. Proffered evidence did not meet the extraordinarily high threshold that might support the grant of habeas relief based on a showing of actual innocence; evidence at trial was sufficient to support Dansby's convictions for capital murder; it was not an unreasonable application of Supreme Court precedent for the Arkansas court to conclude that police officer testimony that Dansby declined to speak further was merely an explanation of the circumstances of Dansby's interview and not an unconstitutional comment on his exercise of his right to remain silent; district court erred in concluding that Dansby's Sixth Amendment claim was procedurally defaulted as the issue raised in his Supreme Court brief was sufficient to give the court notice that he raised a federal constitutional claim; parties had not been given adequate notice and opportunity to be heard on the issue of procedural default with respect to a claim under Brady and Napue v. Illinois, 360 U.S. 264 (1959); court would not expand the certificate of appealability. Case remanded for further proceedings on the two claims identified.


    A federal appeals court says an Arkansas death row inmate's case should head back to the district court for a hearing because of claims about a cellmate who testified in his case.

    The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday says 52-year-old Ray Dansby's case should go back to the federal court in the Western District of Arkansas.

    Dansby was sentenced to death for killing his ex-wife and her boyfriend in 1992.

    His lawyers have argued that the killings were in self-defense and weren't premeditated. The appeals court reinstated two of Dansby's appeal issues that had been tossed out in district court.

    Dansby's attorney, Josh Lee, declined to comment on the case Thursday. A spokesman for Attorney General Dustin McDaniel didn't immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

    In today's Supreme Court orders, Dansby's petition for writ of certiorari was granted and the case remanded to the Eighth Circuit for further consideration in light of Trevino v. Thaler.

    On September 5, 2014, the US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit remanded Dansby's habeas case to Federal District Court for further proceedings.

    In today's orders, the United States Supreme Court declined to review Dansby's petition for certiorari.

    Docketed: March 10, 2015
    Linked with 14A786
    Lower Ct: United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit
    Case Nos.: (10-1990)
    Decision Date: September 5, 2014
    Rehearing Denied: November 18, 2014

    Despite the certiorari denial, I believe Dansby still has some claims pending in Federal District Court.

    I'm assuming the state are appealing to the 8th or he is still awaiting a new sentencing trial.
