UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA TAMPA DIVISION FREDDIE WILSON v. Case No: 8:15-cv-2801 T-24 TGW 8:13-cr-207 T-24TGW UNITED STATES OF AMERICA _________________________________/ ORDER This cause comes before the Court on pro se Petitioner Freddie Wilson’s second motion for recusal. (Civ. Doc. 101). The Court has considered Petitioner’s motion and concludes that it should be denied. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 455, a judge must disqualify herself in any proceeding in which her impartiality might reasonably be questioned or where she has an actual personal bias or prejudice concerning a party. Petitioner argues that he was improperly sentenced in his criminal case which shows that the undersigned “has personal bias or simply does not like the Petitioner.” (Civ. Doc. 101). But Petitioner’s conviction and sentence were reviewed by the Eleventh Circuit and affirmed on appeal. (Crim. Doc. 130). Thus, Petitioner has failed to show that the undersigned’s impartiality might reasonably be questioned. Accordingly, it is ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that Petitioner’s motion is DENIED. DONE AND ORDERED at Tampa, Florida, this 27th day of September, 2017. Copies to: Pro Se Petitioner 1
