Mar. 22, 2022 – In re Friend (1st Dist., Div. 3, A155955)

On reconsideration following the California Supreme Court’s clarification of Prop 66’s successiveness bar for capital habeas petitions in In re Friend (2021) 11 Cal.5th 720, the Court of Appeal denies capital habeas petitioner’s request for a certificate of appealability, finding that petitioner did not make a substantial showing that his claims were not successive, or that he was actually innocent or ineligible for the death penalty.
