carefully considering the objections and making a de novo review of the record in this case,
it is concluded that the proposed findings and recommended disposition should be, and

in the United States District Court, it must be determined whether a certificate of
appealability in the final order should be issued.
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). It is determined that there is no issue on
which Mr. Kelley has made a substantial showing of a denial of a constitutional right. Thus,
the certificate of appealability is denied.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Mr. Kelley’s petition [Doc. No. 2] is
DISMISSED with prejudice. The requested relief is denied and any pending motions are
denied as moot.
