After numerous appeals on a variety of grounds, including improper jury instructions, McNeil's conviction was initially overturned by the US 9th Circuit Court of Appeals which resulted in the granting of a writ of habeas corpus. The State of California then appealed to the US Supreme Court which reversed the 9th Circuit's ruling and remanded the case back to that same venue for further action. Relying on information and instructions from the SCOTUS opinion, the 9th Circuit reconsidered the matter and on March 29, 2005 issued their opinion ruling in favor of the State and reinstating Ms. McNeil's original conviction.
