Metrish v. Lancaster (not that one)

The very last case heard already brought forth a (unanimous) opinion, suggesting a per curiam reversal might have been appropriate. It does teach a lesson about the development of case law (and conclusive rulings by the highest court) as well as how a reasonable position might not be enough to warrant federal habeas relief. A reminder to lower courts, perhaps.
