The following 7th Circuit Court of Appeals opinion was posted after IL deadline on Thursday. 
George R. Sotelo v. United States of America

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Indiana, South Bend Division. Judge Robert L. Miller Jr. 
Criminal. Affirms the Northern District Court’s denial of George Sotelo’s 28 U.S.C. § 2255 motion. Finds Johnson v. United States, 135 S. Ct. 2551 (2015), does not open the door to Sotelo’s claim under § 2255(f)(3). Also finds the appeal is untimely and is unlikely to succeed on the merits.
