PETITIONER CASE NO. 5:14CV00068 BSM RAY HOBBS, Director, Arkansas Department of Correction RESPONDENT ORDER The recommended disposition filed by Magistrate Judge Joe J. Volpe has been reviewed.

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.
