This application was filed on January 14 in the US Court of Appeals, Second Circuit, by our attorney Robert Boyle:
MEMORANDUM OF LAW IN SUPPORT OF
APPLICATION FOR PERMISSION
TO FILE A SECOND OR SUCCESSIVE
28 U.S.C. § 2254 PETITION
This memorandum is respectfully submitted in support of Shane
Watson’s application to file a second or successive 28 U.S.C. §2254 petition.
Mr. Watson seeks habeas review of an order of the Supreme Court of the
State of New York, Appellate Division, First Department, dated February 3,
2015 that denied leave to appeal an order of the Supreme Court, Bronx
County (Price, J.) dated June 13, 2014 denying his motion to vacate a
judgment of conviction.
This represents one of the few remaining options available for having Shane's conviction overturned. Keep the faith!
