Abstract:     
This paper analyzes the impact that the Supreme Court’s recent decisions in Harrington v. Richter, Cullen v. Pinholster, and Greene v. Fisher have had on federal review of state prisoners’ petitions for habeas corpus under Section 2254(d)(1) of the Anti-Terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act. The paper discusses the impact of each case individually, as well as the collective impact on federal review for state prisoners.
