Legal Question

Asked on: 3/24/13, 10:22 pm

If my petition for certiorari (pre-trial habeas corpus under 2241) is granted by the U.S. Supreme Court, so if the judgement (mootness) of dependency case is vacated after the court reviews my opening brief, does that mean that habeas corpus is granted so no case exists any longer? I didn't remark "reverse the decision" but I asked for vacating judgment. Will this be a problem if I didn't ask for reverse the decision of the State court of appeal?

While the above action is taken, can I also file post-trial habeas corpus under 2254 with the U.S. district court since the above decision process takes long time? Will this action jeopardize the above review?
