DENVER— Colorado Attorney General John Suthers announced today that Colorado Solicitor General Dan Domenico will argue a case before the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday, February 27. The case, Wood v. Milyard, concerns whether or not a federal appellate court can raise the untimeliness of a convicted felon’s habeas corpus petition despite the issue not being decided at the district court level. The state will argue that the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals did not err in raising the issue.
 
This will be Domenico’s first argument before the U.S. Supreme Court.
