US v. Blackstone, 17-55023

Affirmed a denial of habeas relief. A federal prisoner argued that his sentence under the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines must be vacated because, in light of Johnson v. US, 135 S. Ct. 2551 (2015), his prior California convictions were no longer treated as crimes of violence. However, the Ninth Circuit held that his habeas motion was untimely.
