Pro se petitioner gets day in court
I was just perusing the Tenth Circuit cases and saw that Michael Strope won a remand of his civil rights claims to district court in Strope v. McKune after previously losing in federal district court and in the Tenth Circuit. Mr. Strope filed a pro se cert petition in the SCOTUS and that court GVR'd the case pursuant to its recent case in Jones v. Bock, 127 S.Ct. 910 (2007). I don't know if Mr. Strope had any help. But I do know that Mr. Strope now has a much better batting average in the SCOTUS than me!
