Bickford v. United States, 206 F.2d 395 (9th Cir. 1953)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 206 F.2d 395 (9th Cir. 1953) August 19, 1953

Norvell Milbern Bickford, appellant, in propria persona.

Edward W. Scruggs, U. S. Atty., Phoenix, Ariz., Oliver T. Hamilton, Asst. U. S. Atty., Tucson, Ariz., for appellee.

Before DENMAN, Chief Judge, and HEALY and BONE, Circuit Judges.


Bickford appeals from a judgment, D.C., 109 F. Supp. 154, denying him relief on his motion under 28 U.S.C. § 2255, which he filed on February 6, 1953. This is his third motion on substantially the same grounds.

Section 2255 provides: "The sentencing court shall not be required to entertain a second or successive motion for similar relief on behalf of the same prisoner."

The judgment is affirmed.
