Torry T. LEWIS, Petitioner-Appellant, v. UNITED STATES of America; Mr. Hollingsworth, Warden, Respondents-Appellees.
Decided: January 08, 2019
Before NIEMEYER, HARRIS, and RICHARDSON, Circuit Judges.
Torry T. Lewis, Appellant Pro Se.
Torry T. Lewis, a federal prisoner, appeals the district court's order dismissing his 28 U.S.C. § 2241 (2012) petition for lack of jurisdiction. Applying our recent decision in United States v. Wheeler, 886 F.3d 415 (4th Cir. 2018), petition for cert. filed, ––– U.S.L.W. –––– (U.S. Oct. 3, 2018) (No. 18-420), we conclude that Lewis cannot challenge his sentence under § 2241 because he has failed to satisfy the requirements of the savings clause of 28 U.S.C. § 2255(e) (2012). Accordingly, we grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis and affirm the district court's judgment. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion.
