McNamee v. Mintzes
ORDER denying 4 Motion to recall mandate and correct the record and transferring motion to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals as a successive habeas petition. Signed by District Judge Denise Page Hood. (DPer)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
CASE NO. 81-CV-745151
HONORABLE DENISE PAGE HOOD
ORDER DENYING MOTION TO RECALL MANDATE
AND CORRECT THE RECORD
AND TRANSFERRING MOTION TO THE SIXTH CIRCUIT COURT OF
APPEALS AS A SUCCESSIVE HABEAS PETITION
This matter is now before the Court on Petitioner’s “Motion to Recall the
Mandate and Correct the Record.” (Doc. No. 4) On May 19, 2017, the Court
issued an Order Denying Without Prejudice the Motion for Relief from
Judgment and Transferring Motion to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals as a
Successive Habeas Petition. Petitioner argues that the Court erred in its
findings and conclusions.
“The basic tenet of the mandate rule is that a district court is bound to
the scope of the remand issued by the court of appeals.” United States v.
Campbell, 168 F.3d 263, 265 (6th Cir. 1999). Because this Court did not
The case was originally assigned to then-District Judge Patricia J. Boyle.
issue a “mandate,” the Court denies Petitioner’s Motion to Recall Mandate.
As to Petitioner’s request to correct the record, the Court denies the motion
without prejudice, again transferring this motion to the Sixth Circuit Court of
Appeals as a successive petition. As this Court noted in its prior order,
Claims may not be presented in a second or
successive petition for habeas corpus relief without
permission from the appellate court. 28 U.S.C. §
2244(b)(3); Gonzalez v. Crosby, 545 U.S. 524, 528
(2005). Failure to obtain precertification for the filing
of such petition deprives the district court of
jurisdiction to adjudicate the claims raised in such a
petition. Burton v. Stewart, 549 U.S. 147, 149 (2007).
Rule 60(b) motions and any post-judgment motions to
amend a petition may not be used as vehicles to
circumvent the limitations that Congress has placed
upon the presentation of claims in a second or
successive application for habeas relief. Gonzalez,
545 U.S. at 531-32. A habeas claim under § 2244(b)
is a claim where the petition seeks to add a new
ground for relief or seeks to present new evidence in
support of a claim already litigated. Id.
(5/19/17 Order, Pg ID 49-50) Petitioner in the instant motion is seeking to
relitigate this Court’s 1982 judgment denying his original habeas petition.
IT IS ORDERED that Petitioner’s Motion to Recall the Mandate is
DENIED and the Motion to Correct the Record is DENIED without prejudice.
(Doc. No. 4)
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court TRANSFER to
the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals the Motion to Recall the Mandate and
Correct the Record (Doc. No. 4).
