MONTANA, Petitioner v. JAMES ALLEN EGELHOFF,?
Did the Montana Supreme Court overrule the lower court or did the U.S. Supreme Court overrule the Montana Supreme Court?

James Allen EGELHOFF
Supreme Court of the United States
518 U.S. 37 (1996)
My interpretation: Egelhoff was found guilty at trial and sentenced to 84 years. The Montana Supreme Court reversed that decision. The United States Supreme Court reversed the Montana Supreme Court, in effect reinstating the 84 year sentence.
Hope this helps.
