POST-CONVICTION RELIEF - Statute of limitation

Petitioner, who raised an argument supported by a recent decision, but not foreclosed by prior law, was not entitled to escape-clause treatment.

The court explained that a change in the law will permit a late or successive PCR petition only if the change is so novel and surprising that a timely petition could not reasonably have relied on it.
