ARNOLD v. STATE OF FLORIDA Doc. 6 Case 4:05-cv-00239-MP-AK Document 6 Filed 07/19/2005 Page 1 of 2 Page 1 of 2 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA TALLAHASSEE DIVISION IVORY LEE ARNOLD, Petitioner, v. STATE OF FLORIDA, Respondent. ___________________________/ REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION This cause is before the Court on Petitioner's petition for writ of habeas corpus. Doc. 1. On this occasion, Petitioner attacks his convictions from March 26, 1990. This petition not only is patently untimely but also is an unauthorized second or successive petition. Although Petitioner answered "No" to the question regarding whether he had previously filed a 2254 petition, that is not the case. In Arnold v. Moore, Cause No. 4:98CV2-WS/WCS (N.D. Fla.), Petitioner attacked the same convictions now at hand. That petition was dismissed with prejudice and affirmed on appeal. See id. at Docs. 15, 17, 18, & 35. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 2244(b)(3)(A), this Court cannot consider a second or successive habeas petition until a panel of the Eleventh Circuit has authorized its filing. There is no indication that Petitioner has satisfied the requirements for filing this case, and thus, it is not properly before this Court for consideration.
