Sixth Circuit -- Douglas Coley v. Margaret Bagley

Death penalty Habeas [thou shalt not kill]

No ineffective assistance for not seeking recusal/removal of judge during penalty phase.

Harmless error in guilt phase when the prosecution shifted theory of the crime as to who actually shot the gun.

No error in not releasing Grand Jury transcript, denying severance.
