STROTHER v. STATE OF FLORIDA Doc. 5 Case 1:06-cv-00015-MP-AK Document 5 Filed 01/27/2006 Page 1 of 2 Page 1 of 2 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA GAINESVILLE DIVISION STANLEY M. STROTHER, Petitioner, v. STATE OF FLORIDA, Respondent. ___________________________/ REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION This matter is before the Court on Doc. 1, Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus, filed by Stanley M. Strother. This is not Petitioner's first habeas corpus petition in this Court. See Strother v. Crosby, 4:03cv19-SPM/AK (N.D. Fla.). In that proceeding, habeas relief was denied on the merits, and the case was dismissed with prejudice. Docs. 16-18. Petitioner did not appeal. On this occasion, Petitioner challenges his conviction based on Blakely v. Washington. However, because this is a second or successive petition, this Court has no authority to consider anything related to this petition. Instead, Petitioner must first "move in the appropriate court of appeals for an order authorizing the district court to consider the application." 28 U.S.C. 2244(3)(A). Only after the court of appeals determines "that the application makes a prima facie showing that the application [shows that the claim relies on a new rule of constitutional law, made retroactive to cases on collateral review by the Supreme Court, that was previously CASE NO. 1:06-cv-00015-MP-AK Dockets.Justia.com Case 1:06-cv-00015-MP-AK Document 5 Filed 01/27/2006 Page 2 of 2 Page 2 of 2 unavailable]" will the appellate court "authorize the filing of a second or successive application...." Id. at (2)(A) &(3)(C). Accordingly, it is respectfully RECOMMENDED: That the petition for writ of habeas corpus, Doc. 1, be DENIED as an unauthorized second or successive petition; That this cause be DISMISSED.
