CA6: 2254 petitioner’s argument state court “did not squarely address” his 4A argument still barred by Stone

“Tippins does not dispute that the state courts provided him a mechanism by which to present his Fourth Amendment claim. He instead argues that because the state courts did not squarely address the cases he raised on direct appeal, Powell does not bar his claim from habeas review. But as this court has explained, an adverse suppression ruling does not equate to a ‘failure’ of the state court process: ….” Tippins v. Parish, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 36800 (6th Cir. Dec. 13, 2021).

The 2254 Stone bar applies to arrest allegedly without probable cause, too. Khamisi v. Neil, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 237834 (S.D.Ohio Dec. 13, 2021).
