Robert Boyle Files the Application for a Federal Appeal

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 PRELIMINARY STATEMENT

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!
