Keith D. Wilson, Appellant Pro Se. Clarence Joe DelForge, III, Assistant Attorney General, Raleigh, North Carolina, for Appellees.
Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
PER CURIAM: Keith D. Wilson seeks to appeal the district court's order denying his second Fed. R. Civ. P. 60(b) motion for
reconsideration of the district court's order denying relief on his 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (2000) petition. The notice of appeal was
received in the district court shortly after expiration of the appeal period. Because Wilson is incarcerated, the notice is
considered filed as of the date it was properly delivered to prison officials for mailing to the court. Houston v. Lack, 487 U.S. 266 (1988). Fed. R. App. P. 4(c)(1); The record is ambiguous as
to when Wilson gave the notice of appeal to prison officials for mailing. Accordingly, we remand the case for the limited purpose
of allowing the district court to obtain this information from the parties and to determine whether the filing was timely under Fed. R. App. P. 4(c)(1) and Houston v. Lack. The record, as
supplemented, will then be returned to this court for further consideration. REMANDED
