Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit reissues as opinion today one Indiana decision

In Abduwali Muse v. Charles A. Daniels (SD Ind., Magnus-Stinson), a 3-page opinion, Judge Easterbrook writes:

Abduwali Muse pleaded guilty to piracy, 18 U.S.C. §2280, among other crimes, for his role in boarding the MV Maersk Alabama in 2009 in interna-­‐‑ tional waters off the coast of Somalia and taking its captain hostage. * * *

Muse’s brief in this court ignores his waiver and §2255(e) alike. Instead he presents an argument about the extent to which 28 U.S.C. §636(b)(1)(A) permits magistrate judges to resolve contests about criminal defendants’ ages. The brief thus gives us no reason to question the district court’s decision. AFFIRMED
