Kinchloe v. Sherry
ORDER denying 39 Motion for release ; denying 41 Motion to Appoint Counsel. Signed by District Judge Paul D. Borman. (DTof)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
Case Number: 2:07-CV-12460
HONORABLE PAUL D. BORMAN
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
JERI ANN SHERRY,
ORDER DENYING PETITIONER’S “SUPPLEMENTAL AMICUS
CURIAE/RES JUDICATA/COLLATERAL ESTOPPEL” (ECF NO. 39)
AND MOTION TO APPOINT COUNSEL (ECF NO. 41)
Paul Andrew Kinchloe (Petitioner), a prisoner in the custody of the Michigan
Department of Corrections, filed a pro se petition for a writ of habeas corpus. This was
Petitioner’s second habeas petition challenging the same conviction. The Court issued an
order transferring the petition to the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit
because Petitioner had not received authorization to file a successive petition as required
by 28 U.S.C. § 2243(b)(3). The Court of Appeals dismissed the action for want of
prosecution. See In re: Paul Andrew Kinchloe, No. 14-2598 (6th Cir. Feb. 12, 2015)
(ECF No. 24). Now before the Court are two filings by Petitioner.
First, Petitioner has filed a “Supplemental Amicus Curiae/Res Judicata/Collateral
Estoppel.” The true nature of this filing is difficult to discern as it is a confusing
combination of legalese, most of it apparently unrelated to the habeas corpus proceeding.1
Ultimately, Petitioner seeks release from prison and that all food served to him in prison
be served “with close video documentary scrutiny ... and food handlers designated by the
court.” Supplemental Amicus Curiae at 4, ECF No. 39, Pg. ID 134.
This habeas proceeding has been closed since 2007. To the extent that the
Supplemental Amicus Curiae seeks reconsideration of the Court’s previous decision it is
not timely filed. See E.D. Mich. LR 7.1(h). To the extent that the pleading seeks relief
related to the manner in which food is served to Petitioner during his incarceration, this
claim is unrelated to the habeas corpus proceeding and not properly filed in this closed
case. Relief will be denied.
Also before the Court is Petitioner’s Motion to Appoint Counsel. Because the
matter is no longer pending in this Court, the motion will be denied as moot.
Accordingly, Petitioner’s “Supplemental Amicus Curiae” (ECF No. 39) is
DENIED. Petitioner’s “Motion to Appoint Counsel” (ECF No. 41) is DENIED AS
For example, Petitioner writes:
The legal argument outlined in the initial amicus curiae filed. Outlined the
legal components of a foreseeable breech [sic]. By the foreign constructess
engaging in contractual agreements with the United States for reocvery of
debts premised on loans. And the ulimtate breech [sic] of the corporate
charter, binding upon states allegiance. Under the Declaration of
Independence. ... [R]esulting in a breech [sic] of contract by the corporate
United States capitol upon the states. ...
Supplemental Amicus Curiae at 1-2, ECF No. 39, Pg. ID 131-32.
