Pg: 2 of 3
Raymond Griffin seeks to appeal the district court’s order
denying relief on his 28 U.S.C. § 2241 (2012) petition, and he
has filed a motion to proceed in forma pauperis, as well as a
motion for appointment of counsel.
The district court’s order
is not appealable unless a circuit justice or judge issues a
certificate of appealability.
28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(1)(A) (2012).

When the district court denies relief on procedural grounds, the
prisoner must demonstrate both that the dispositive procedural
ruling is debatable, and that the petition states a debatable
claim of the denial of a constitutional right.
Slack, 529 U.S.
Accordingly, we deny Griffin’s motion for appointment
of counsel, deny the application to proceed in forma pauperis,
deny a certificate of appealability, and dismiss the appeal.
