133584P.pdf 01/21/2015 Manuel Camacho v. Ray Hobbs U.S. Court of Appeals Case No: 13-3584 U.S. District Court for the Western District of Arkansas - Fayetteville [PUBLISHED] [Wollman, Author, with Colloton and Benton, Circuit Judges] Prisoner case - habeas. The district court erred in finding the habeas petition was time-barred; for Camacho, a state prisoner who did not seek review in the state's highest court, the judgment became final on the date the time for seeking such review expired rather than the date the judgment was entered; applying this analysis, the petition was timely filed. 141909U.pdf 01/21/2015 United States v. Jose Adame U.S. Court of Appeals Case No: 14-1909 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Iowa - Des Moines [UNPUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Smith, Gruender and Benton, Circuit Judges] Criminal case - Sentencing. Anders case. The court imposed the statutory minimum sentence, the shortest sentence possible, and the sentence was not substantively unreasonable; an enhancement challenged by defendant's pro se brief had no effect on his ultimate sentence. 142179U.pdf 01/21/2015 Patrick A. Carlone v. Asbestos Workers Local 34 U.S. Court of Appeals Case No: 14-2179 U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota - Minneapolis [UNPUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Smith, Bowman and Colloton, Circuit Judges] Civil case. The district court did not err in imposing Rule 11 sanctions on plaintiff, a litigant with an extensive history of filing frivolous and vexatious lawsuits; that portion of the court's order which enjoined future lawsuits unless plaintiff both is represented by counsel and has obtained prior court approval is modified to reflect plaintiff is enjoined from filing future lawsuits unless he is either represented by counsel or has obtained prior court approval.
