Beaux Gordon Sines, a federal prisoner, appeals from the dismissal of his application for a writ of habeas corpus under 28 U.S.C. Â§ 2241. The district court denied relief on the ground that his claim was not one that could be pursued under Â§ 2241. On appeal he contends (1) that he could pursue relief under Â§ 2241 because the district courts improper denial of his prior Â§ 2255 motion rendered relief under Â§ 2255 inadequate and ineffective; and alternatively, (2) that his notice of appeal should be treated as appealing the denial of his Â§ 2255 motion. Exercising jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. Â§ 1291, we affirm the dismissal by the district court. Mr. Siness remedy under Â§ 2255 was not inadequate or ineffective; he could have appealed the district courts dismissal of his motion. And his notice of appeal cannot be construed as encompassing the denial of his Â§ 2255 motion, because the notice does not evince an intent to appeal that denial.
