    Question Reopening an Appeal After Denial of Certiorari

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: OHIO

    After fighting an appeal for several years, the petition for writ of habeas corpus was denied by the district court, in which there were several glaring errors made in denying the petition. After awaiting a decision on appeal from the Sixth Circuit, an unnamed circuit judge denied the appeal without addressing practically [I]any[I] of the case law arguments made and giving a cursory explanation denying each of the six grounds for relief. A motion for reconsideration was inadvertently filed two weeks late, and which should've caused the appeal to indeed be reopened, and was denied. Certiorari to the US Supreme Court was also denied as untimely.

    My question is: What is the proper method to get this appeal reopened in the Sixth Circuit or to get it in front of the Supreme Court?

    Curious to know why you ask and what bearing that has on the question...and no, I am not.

    Unfortunately, the chances of this being reopened are slim to none and I believe slim has left the building.

    Untimely is an absolutely valid reason to deny; you may - JUST MAY - have something of a case against your attorney.

    If you did not have an attorney, you're going to spend an awful lot of time and money with no benefit.
