IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
DEMETRIUS LETRON HEARD
CASE NO.: 5:11CV00218 SWW/BD
RAY HOBBS, Director,
Arkansas Department of Correction
The Court has reviewed the Recommended Disposition received from Magistrate
Judge Beth Deere. The parties have not filed any objections to the Recommendation.
This Court adopts the Recommendation and dismisses Mr. Heard’s Petition for Writ of
Habeas Corpus (docket entry #1) without prejudice.
When entering a final order adverse to a habeas corpus petitioner, the Court must
issue or deny a certificate of appealability. Rule 11 of the Rules Governing Section 2254
Cases. A certificate of appealability may issue only if a petitioner has made a substantial
showing of the denial of a constitutional right. 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(1)-(2). In this case,
Mr. Heard has not provided a basis for this court to issue a certificate of appealability.
Accordingly, a certificate of appealability is denied.
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 26th day of October 2011.
