Your question is unclear. You may want to re-post it. You may also contact me directly if you want to discuss your case.

Structural error is a defect in the way a trial is conducted. A biased judge is one example. AEDPA is a federal law about procedures for appeals and habeas corpus cases. They are distinct from one another, so I'm not sure what you're asking.
