CA6: New evidence in civil case to impeach officers’ prior suppression hearing testimony isn’t ground for a successor 2255

2255 petitioner filed a successor petition alleging that a civil case he filed developed impeachment material that would undermine the original probable cause finding. This isn’t new evidence of innocence for a successor petition. In re Mohammed, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 14526 (6th Cir. June 1, 2018).

Playpen warrant sustained. United States v. Jean, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 14590 (8th Cir. June 1, 2018).*

Defense counsel was not ineffective in arguing the motion to suppress. There was probable cause for the search warrant and the good faith exception would have applied in any event. Khan v. United States, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 91535 (D. N.M. May 31, 2018).*
