In a recent decision the Supreme Court has halted the prior trend of increasing the scope of federal review available to state prisoners. The case broke with a substantial history of decisions by denying habeas corpus to state prisoners who asserted fourth amendment violations. The author suggests that the rationale of the holding implies that there will be further limitations placed upon federal review of state decisions which contain issues of federally created rights.
