Supreme Court of Florida.

CALVIN E. SUGGS, JR. Petitioner(s) v. STATE OF FLORIDA Respondent(s)

CASE NO.: SC17-887

Decided: July 18, 2017

To the extent Petitioner seeks a writ of mandamus, the petition is hereby denied because Petitioner has failed to show a clear legal right to the relief requested. See Huffman v. State, 813 So. 2d 10, 11 (Fla. 2000). To the extent Petitioner seeks additional relief, the petition is hereby denied as procedurally barred. A petition for extraordinary relief is not a second appeal and cannot be used to litigate or relitigate issues that were or could have been raised on direct appeal or in prior postconviction proceedings. See Denson v. State, 775 So. 2d 288, 290 (Fla. 2000); Breedlove v. Singletary, 595 So. 2d 8, 10 (Fla. 1992). No rehearing will be entertained by this Court.
