In re: Lisa Coleman, No. 14-11024 (5th Cir. 2014)Annotate this Case
Petitioner, convicted of murder and sentenced to death, appealed the district court's holding that her Rule 60(b) motion was a successive writ. The court affirmed the district court's holding that the motion was a successive habeas petition where petitioner's claim that counsel failed to discover and present additional evidence was fundamentally substantive; denied the application for a second or successive habeas petition where petitioner failed to argue, nor could she, that her claim is based on a new rule of constitutional law; denied the application for a certificate of appealability; and denied the motion for stay of execution.
