2255 Motions to Vacate Convictions Cases


In dismissing these 2255 motions to vacate, the government lawyers and judges failed to respond  to the allegation of ground one which are the same in all § 2255 motion applications. Rule (5)(b).


Ground One:

[Inmate]is being illegally deprived of a substantial constitutional right, his liberty. Congress criminalized marijuana without compelling government reasons therefore without due process of law contravening the 4th and 5th Amendments of the Constitution of the United States and is unconstitutional.”


The courts have denied the being incarcerated is seizure of person and  deprivation of their constitutional right of liberty.
