Davies v. Benov, No. 15-17256 [May 17, 2017]

Davies v. Benov

Davies in a 2241 habeas petition argued that a congressional appropriations rider prohibits the BOP from using federal funds to incarcerate him for conduct he contends complied with California’s medical marijuana laws. The panel found the claim was precluded by the collateral-attack waiver provision of Davies’s plea agreement, “which clearly covers his present challenge.”
