United States District Court, N.D. Illinois
July 12, 2004.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: PHILIP REINHARD, District Judge
MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER
Petitioner, Ilander Willis, a federal prisoner under a sentence
of imprisonment imposed on June 6, 1994, has filed for a
modification of his term of imprisonment pursuant to
18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(1)(A)(i). However, the authority Willis relies on is the
recent Supreme Court case of Blakely v. Washington, No. 02-1632,
2004 WL 1402697 (June 24, 2004). This application is dismissed
for want of jurisdiction as § 3582(c)(1)(A)(i) confers authority
to modify a sentence upon motion of the Director of the Bureau of
prisons and no such motion has been filed by the Director.
Further, if this court were to consider the application as a
motion for relief filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255, the result
would be the same as it would constitute a successive collateral
attack. Melton v. United States, 359 F.3d 855, 857 (7th
