Rendon v. United States of America Doc. 6 Case 8:05-cv-00840-SDM-MAP Document 6 Filed 06/13/2005 Page 1 of 2 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA TAMPA DIVISION UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, v. GEOVANNI QUINTERO-RENDON, / ORDER Quintero-Rendon's motion to vacate sentence pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 2255 (Doc. 1) was initially dismissed (Doc. 3) because, according to the information in the motion, it was time-barred. In calculating the limitations period, the ninety-day period to file a petition for writ of certiorari was not counted, in accordance with Clay v. United States, 537 U.S. 522 (2003). Quintero-Rendon seeks reconsideration (Doc. 5) and provides an attachment showing that he actually filed a petition for writ of certiorari, which he did not disclose in his motion to vacate sentence. Based on the date of denial of his petition for certiorari (May 3, 2004), the motion to vacate sentence is not timebarred.
