RAY HOBBS, Director of the
Arkansas Department of Correction
The Court has received proposed Findings and Recommendations from Magistrate Judge
H. David Young. After careful review of those Findings and Recommendations, the timely
objections received thereto, and a de novo review of the record, the Court concludes that the Findings
and Recommendations should be, and hereby are, approved and adopted in their entirety as this
court’s findings in all respects, with one exception. The recommended disposition stated that
Alexander/Ryahim’s April 2011 application to the Eighth Circuit for permission to file a second or
successive petition was pending. On June 6, 2011, the Eighth Circuit denied that application.

Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2253 and Rule 11 of the Rules Governing Section 2554 Cases in the
United States District Court, the Court must determine whether to issue a certificate of appealability
in the final order. In § 2254 cases, a certificate of appealability may issue only if the applicant has
made a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right. 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(1)-(2). The
Court finds no issue on which petitioner has made a substantial showing of a denial of a
constitutional right. Thus, the certificate of appealability is denied.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 23rd day of June, 2011.
