The Court has reviewed the Recommended Disposition (“Recommendation”)
received from Magistrate Judge Beth Deere, and has reviewed de novo those portions of
the Recommendation to which Mr. Chestang objects. This Court adopts the
Recommendation as its own. KeOndra M. Chestang’s Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus
(docket entry #2) is dismissed, without prejudice. All pending motions are denied as
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,
there is no basis for this court to issue a certificate of appealability. Accordingly, a
certificate of appealability is denied.
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 23rd day of April, 2012.
