Seeboth v. Allenby, No. 12-17062 (6-18-15)(Graber with Kozinski and Ponsor, Sr. D.J.) Petitioners challenged the California Sexually Violent Predator Act (SVPA) as facially unconstitutional in failing to set forth a time under the statute for a recommitment trial. The 9th held under AEDPA that the state acted reasonably in finding that the statute was not unconstitutional, and did not violate equal protection in treating sexual predators differently from mentally ill violent offenders.
