UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
ROBERT NELSON HOWELL, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, District Judge
On November 17, 2000, the Court sentenced Howell to 360 months imprisonment (Doc. 245) and the Clerk of the Court entered Judgment reflecting the same on November 27, 2000 (Doc. 249).*fn1 On April 30, 2007, Howell filed a pleading titled "special bond" and above the case number in the caption placed "Admiralty Claim" (Doc. 366).*fn2 The Court reminds Howell that this was a criminal matter (not an admiralty matter) and that it is closed. Thus, the Court DISMISSES for lack of jurisdiction Howell's pleading titled "special bond" (Doc. 366). As this matter is closed, the Court CAUTIONS Howell not to file any more pleadings in this case, or risk the imposition of sanctions.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
