LARRY NORRIS, Director, Arkansas Department of Correction ORDER
Petitioner has submitted what the court has determined to be a successive petition to his previously filed habeas cases, Kain v. Norris, PB-C-95-520 (D.E.Ark. June 7, 1996). The Eighth Circuit Kain
denied a certificate of appealability on September 5, 1996. v. Norris, No. 96-2862EAPB (Sept.5, 1996).
The amendments to 28
U.S.C. §2254 that were signed into law April 26, 1996, prohibit petitioners from filing successive petitions in the District Court without authorization from the Circuit Court of Appeals. The
requirements that must be met to obtain authorization from the Court of Appeals are found in 28 U.S.C. §2244(b), as amended. The
amendments are available in the unit law library, or by contacting the Clerk, Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, Thomas F. Eagleton Courthouse, 111 S. 10th Street, St. Louis, Mo. 63102, for more information.
