Bido filed a motion for bail pending the resolution of his § 2255 petition pro se. The court denied the motion because it found Bido had not raised substantial claims that were likely to succeed and because he had failed to show extraordinary circumstances that made the grant of bail necessary to make the habeas remedy effective. The court recognized the severity of the risks of COVID-19 but noted Bido did not explain why he was particularly at risk.
