The petition of the day is:

12-978

Issue: Whether, when a prisoner’s first federal habeas motion results in the entry of a new sentencing judgment, a subsequent habeas motion is “second or successive,” within the meaning of the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996, 28 U.S.C. §§2244 and 2255(h), when it challenges the underlying conviction rather than the terms of the new sentence.
