Diaz loses appeal of habeas denial in the 10th Circuit

We have previously noted the long-running case of United States v. Diaz, in which the Supremes denied not one, but two cert petitions on direct review.

Last month, in an unpublished decision, the Tenth Circuit affirmed an order from the United States District Court for the District of Kansas denying Diaz habeas relief. Diaz v. Inch, No. 07-3302 (10th Cir. Mar. 11, 2008). That means collateral review of the Diaz case is one more cert denial away from being complete.
