CA6: New information about a search doesn’t qualify for successor habeas

Alleged new information about the search of defendant’s property doesn’t allege actual innocence and thus is not grounds for a successor habeas. In re Fisher, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 677 (6th Cir. Jan. 11, 2023).

2255 petitioner’s ineffectiveness claim on a search issue was properly denied. The issue he raised was within the issues decided by the district court before the direct appeal. Ochoa v. United States, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 474 (11th Cir. Jan. 9, 2023).*

A jail strip search case has to allege that the search was unreasonable and how. This fails that standard. Spencer v. United States, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 5031 (M.D. Pa. Jan. 10, 2023).*
