UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
JOHN E. MILTON, III, Also Known as Boo Milton,
Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Middle District of Louisiana
Before DAVIS, SMITH, and PRADO, Circuit Judges.
John E. Milton, III, federal prisoner # 24395-034, was convicted of con-

spiring to possess crack and powder cocaine with intent to distribute. He challenges the denial of a motion that he labeled as arising under Federal Rule of
Criminal Procedure 36. His request for a certificate of appealability is DENIED
as unnecessary, because he is not challenging “the final order in a proceeding
under” 28 U.S.C. § 2255. See 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(1)(B).
In his filing with this court, Milton contends that relief under Rule 36 is
proper because his arguments concerning the district court’s alleged failure to
comply with certain portions of Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 32 relate to
ministerial matters. We disagree and discern no error in the district court’s
holding that Milton’s motion, which raised a claim that did not pertain to a clerical matter and that could have been presented earlier, was an unauthorized successive § 2255 motion. See United States v. Orozco-Ramirez, 211 F.3d 862, 867
(5th Cir. 2000); United States v. Key, 205 F.3d 773, 774 (5th Cir. 2000); 28 U.S.C.
The judgment is AFFIRMED, and Milton’s motion to proceed in forma
pauperis is DENIED.
