Cushaw B. Barnett v. Steven J. Mcauliffe

May 3, 2013

CUSHAW B. BARNETT
v.
STEVEN J. MCAULIFFE



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Steven J. McAuliffe United States District Judge

ORDER

Re: (Document No. 8)

Motion for Recusal of Judge Steven J. McAuliffe

Ruling: Denied. Although petitioner styled the caption of his initial pleading as if it were a civil claim of some kind against the presiding judge, it is plain that petitioner only sought relief allowed by and under the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 2255. The real parties in interest are the petitioner and the United States - no claim has been asserted against the presiding judge, nor could one be asserted in this context, and merely styling the case incorrectly does not give rise to a basis upon which to urge recusal of the assigned judge. This case is closed.
