Argument on Innocence and Time Limits

Last week I previewed the argument in McQuiggin v. Perkins, on whether a claim of actual innocence can overcome the habeas corpus statute of limitations. The argument was held yesterday.  The transcript is here.  Adam Liptak has this story in the NYT.

As noted in the preview, the case is a poor vehicle for resolving the question because Perkins' claim of innocence is weak, to put it mildly.
