RAY HOBBS, Director,
Arkansas Department of Correction
The proposed findings and recommended disposition submitted by United States
Magistrate Judge J. Thomas Ray have been reviewed. After careful consideration, it is
concluded that the proposed findings and recommended disposition should be, and hereby
are, approved and adopted in their entirety in all respects.
The amended petition for writ of habeas corpus [Doc. No. 2] pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
§ 2254 filed by Robert Barnes is dismissed without prejudice. In § 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). As there is no issue on which Barnes
has made a substantial showing of a denial of a constitutional right, a certificate of
appealability is denied.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 2nd day of December 2014.
