Rare Error Correction:
Does anyone know the backstory to Erickson v. Pardus, a per curiam summary reversal handed down today? It looks like a relatively routine pro se prisoner lawsuit; the Tenth Circuit had denied relief in an unpublished opinion. Based on the docket sheet, it looks like the inmate petitioned pro se, and the state initially waived its right to file a brief. The Court called for a response, later called for the record, and then after holding the case for a while reversed 7-2.
