Russo v. United States
2nd Circuit Court of Appeals; Case No. 16-2118
Decision below Case No. 15-CV-48 (E.D.N.Y. January 1, 2015).
It is crucial that avenues remain open to assert claims based on newly discovered evidence of innocence. Innocent convicts face enormous challenges in uncovering and litigating new evidence of innocence. The Section 2255 Savings Clause requires meaningfully adequate consideration of newly discovered evidence of innocence. The Court should eliminate its requirement that motions for authorization to file successive habeas petitions be limited to the Court's pre-printed form.
