IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
CASE NO. 5:14CV00068 BSM
RAY HOBBS, Director,
Arkansas Department of Correction
The recommended disposition filed by Magistrate Judge Joe J. Volpe has been
reviewed. After careful consideration of the objections, as well as a de novo review of the
record, the recommended disposition should be, and hereby is, approved and adopted in
its entirety in all respects. Charles Thompson’s petition for writ of habeas corpus [Doc.
No. 2] is denied and dismissed with prejudice.
When entering a final order adverse to a habeas corpus petitioner, a certificate of
appealability must be issued or denied. 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 6th day of October 2014.
