Eighth Circuit -- Archie Bear v. John Fayram

Archie Bear v. John Fayram

No error in District Court's holding that the text of the AEDPA statute was in the prison library.

The fact that AEDPA is tolled only at the time of filing a state habeus petition derives clearly from the statute - lack of clarifying caselaw in the library did not constitute a denial of access to the courts.
