IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
WESTERN DIVISION AT DAYTON
TIMOTHY D. WRIGHT,
- vs -
Case No. 3:02-cv-063
District Judge Thomas M. Rose
Magistrate Judge Michael R. Merz
HARRY RUSSELL, Warden,
Lebanon Correctional Institution,
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS ON MOTION FOR RELIEF
FROM THE ORDER OF AUGUST 29, 2017
This habeas corpus case is before the Court on Petitioner’s Motion (ECF No. 62) for
Relief from the Court’s Order of August 29, 2017 (ECF No. 61), denying Petitioner’s prior
Motion to Reopen Judgment (ECF No. 56).
Wright raises no question that was not already considered by this Court and rejected.
While it is true that federal courts are courts of limited jurisdiction whose jurisdiction must be
proved when it is challenged, the Report cited 28 U.S.C. § 2241 which gives federal courts
jurisdiction in habeas corpus, thus creating a forum in which the right to habeas corpus,
enshrined in the Constitution, may be exercised. That is what Wright did when he invoked the
habeas corpus jurisdiction of this Court back in 2002.
Because Wright raises no new questions this Court has not already considered and
because he has not shown any error of law in the August 29, 2017, his Motion should be
September 14, 2017.
