United States Seventh Circuit

Poe v. US, 04-3697

Denial of a 28 U.S.C. section 2255 motion as untimely is affirmed where the motion came over a year after the Supreme Court decision in Richardson v. US, 526 U.S. 816, 824 (1999). Petitioner's arguments that an improper but timely habeas petition should have been treated as a 2255 motion, and that the "unique circumstances" doctrine should apply, do not have support in established case law.
