“We, like the district court, have kept the strict constraints of the AEDPA forefront in our minds as we proceed with our review of the district court's decision to grant the habeas petition,” wrote Judge Ilana Rovner, joined by Judge Ann Claire Williams. “The state courts' finding that Dassey's confession was voluntary was not beyond fair debate, but we conclude it was reasonable,” wrote Judge David Hamilton.

“Yet even given the constraints of the AEDPA, we must conclude that the state court's determination was an unreasonable application of Supreme Court precedent.” The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals agreed to hear the case en banc and in , No. The majority noted that the AEDPA governs habeas corpus petitions that challenge state court convictions and determines that a state court conviction “cannot be overturned unless the state courts’ adjudication of a federal claim on the merits: (1) resulted in a decision that was contrary to, or involved an unreasonable application of, clearly established Federal law, as determined by the Supreme Court of the United States; or (2) resulted in a decision that was based on an unreasonable determination of the facts in light of the evidence presented in the State court proceeding.” Federal habeas relief from state convictions is rare, the majority noted.

“It is reserved for those relatively uncommon cases in which state courts veer well outside the channels of reasonable decision-making about federal constitutional claims.” Reviewing the Wisconsin Court of Appeals decision, the majority ruled that it could not rule in Dassey’s favor because the appeals court decision was not unreasonably wrong.
