Franesiour B. Kemache-Webster appeals the district court’s
order denying his Fed. R. Civ. P. 60(b) motion for reconsideration
of the district court’s order denying relief on his 28 U.S.C.
§ 2255 (2012) motion. *
We have reviewed the record and conclude
that Kemache-Webster’s motion was not a true Rule 60(b) motion,
but in substance a successive and unauthorized § 2255 motion.
United States v. McRae, 793 F.3d 392, 399-400 (4th Cir. 2015); see
also Gonzalez v. Crosby, 545 U.S. 524, 531-32 (2005) (explaining
how to differentiate a true Rule 60(b) motion from an unauthorized
jurisdiction to hear Kemache-Webster’s successive § 2255 motion.
See 28 U.S.C. § 2244(b)(3) (2012).
Accordingly, we affirm.
Additionally, we construe Kemache-Webster’s notice of appeal
and informal brief as an application to file a second or successive
§ 2255 motion.
United States v. Winestock, 340 F.3d 200, 208 (4th
In order to obtain authorization to file a successive
§ 2255 motion, a prisoner must assert claims based on either: (1)
newly discovered evidence that would be sufficient to establish by
clear and convincing evidence that no reasonable factfinder would
We treat the district court’s denial of Kemache-Webster’s
Rule 60(b) motion as a dismissal because that court did not have
jurisdiction to consider his successive claims.

have found the movant guilty of the offense; or (2) a new rule of
constitutional law, made retroactive to cases on collateral review
by the Supreme Court, that was previously unavailable.
§ 2255(h). Kemache-Webster’s claims do not satisfy either of these
Therefore, we deny authorization to file a successive
§ 2255 motion.
We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal
contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this
court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
