Bland v. Hobbs
ORDER denying pltf's 15 Motion for Reconsideration; the motion for certificate of appealability is denied. Signed by Judge J. Leon Holmes on 7/31/12. (vjt)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
GLENN RICKY BLAND,
No. 5:11CV00286 JLH-JTK
RAY HOBBS, Director,
Arkansas Department of Correction
The Court has previously entered an Order adopting the Proposed Findings and
Recommendations from United States Magistrate Judge Jerome T. Kearney. Magistrate Judge
Kearney recommended that the Court dismiss the habeas corpus petition of Glenn Ricky Bland
because the petition is barred by the statute of limitations and because his claim was not presented
to the state courts. Bland has filed a motion for reconsideration in which he addresses the merits of
his petition but not the procedural grounds on which it was dismissed.
The motion for
reconsideration is DENIED. Document #15. The motion for certificate of appealability is again
denied because no reasonable jurist could disagree with the conclusion that Bland’s petition was
untimely and barred because it was not presented to the state courts.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 31st day of July, 2012.
J. LEON HOLMES
