Sherrod v. US, No. 16-72178 [June 2, 2017]

Sherrod v. US

Sherrod’s application for authorization of a second or successive 2255 motion was denied. The Court held that a § 3582(c)(2) sentence reduction does not qualify as a new, intervening judgment; and that he must therefore, obtain such an authorization. The Court denied his authorization as he did not make a prima facie showing under 2255(h) of newly-discovered evidence or a new rule of constitutional law.
