Webster v. Cooper 558 U.S. ___ (2009)

Scalia dissented from the Court's decision to vacate a lower court's decision and remand for further consideration in light of the Court's decision in Jimenez v. Quarterman. Scalia objected that, as Jimenez was decided more than two months prior to the lower court's decision under review, there was no basis for treating Jimenez as an "intervening factor" that the lower court could not have considered.
