Gray v. Hobbs
ORDER ADOPTING 12 Report and Recommendations in their entirety; therefore, the petition for writ of habeas corpus is dismissed with prejudice; a certificate of appealability is denied. Signed by Chief Judge J. Leon Holmes on 5/11/12. (vjt)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
NO. 5:12CV00039 JLH/BD
RAY HOBBS, Director,
Arkansas Department of Correction
The Court has received the recommendation from Magistrate Judge Beth Deere that the
petition in this case be dismissed with prejudice. Levonia Gray has filed objections, which the Court
has considered. After conducting a de novo review of those portions of the record relevant to the
objections, the Court adopts the Recommended Disposition as its own. The Petition for Writ of
Habeas Corpus (docket entry #2) is dismissed with prejudice.
When entering a final order adverse to a habeas corpus petitioner, the Court must issue or
deny a certificate of appealability. Rule 11, 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, Gray 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 11th day of May, 2012.
