In re: McFadden, 15-206

In a motion for authorization to file a successive habeas corpus application pursuant to 28 U.S.C. section 2254, the motion is denied where claim, based on newly discovered facts suggesting that his trial counsel did not communicate to him a favorable plea offer, does not fall within the exceptions to the bar on successive habeas applications under 28 U.S.C. section 2244(b) because it neither arises from a new constitutional rule of law, nor introduces evidence relevant to an evaluation of his guilt.
