UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
No. 4:11CV2058 RWS
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before me on movant’s pro se motion for new proceedings and
motion for recusal. Both motions are frivolous.
Movant does not believe that I should have been assigned to hear his § 2255
motion because I was assigned to his criminal action. Movant is incorrect. Title
28 U.S.C. § 2255 “clearly permits and requires the attack on a federal sentence to
be made in the sentencing court absent a showing that such court has denied relief
or that the remedy under § 2255 is inadequate or ineffective to test the validity of
the detention.” Humphries v. Ciccone, 428 F.2d 477, 478 (8th Cir. 1970); see
Farrow v. United States, 580 F.2d 1339, 1349 (9th Cir. 1978) (“motions under
[§ 2255] are properly presented to the original sentencing judge.”). Regardless,
this action is closed, and the judgment is final. As a result, both motions are
denied with prejudice.
