IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
JAMES EDWARD HURST
Case No. 5:13-cv-000222-KGB-JJV
RAY HOBBS, Director,
Arkansas Department of Correction
The Court has reviewed the Proposed Findings and Recommended Disposition submitted
by United States Magistrate Judge Joe J. Volpe (Dkt. No. 16). No objections have been filed,
and the time for filing objections has passed. After careful consideration, the Court concludes
that the Proposed Findings and Recommended Disposition should be, and hereby are, approved
and adopted in their entirety as this Court’s findings in all respects.
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2253 and Rule 11 of the Rules Governing Section 2554 Cases in
the United States District Court, the Court must determine whether to issue a certificate of
appealability in the final order. 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). The Court finds no issue on which Mr. Hurst has made a substantial showing of
the denial of a constitutional right. The Court therefore denies the certificate of appealability.
The Court dismisses with prejudice Mr. Hurst’s Petition (Dkt. No. 2). The Court denies
the requested relief, and the Court denies as moot any pending motions.
SO ORDERED this the 30th day of April, 2014.
