Cox v. Hobbs
ORDER ADOPTING 13 the findings and recommendation; dismissing 1 the Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus; and denying a certificate of appealability. Signed by Chief Judge Brian S. Miller on 7/8/2014. (kdr)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
CASE NO. 5:14CV00114 BSM
The findings and recommendation submitted by United States Magistrate Judge H.
David Young have been received. No objections have been filed. After careful review, it is
concluded that the findings and recommendation should be, and hereby are, approved and
adopted in their entirety in all respects. Accordingly, the petition for writ of habeas corpus
filed by Richard Cox is dismissed.
When entering a final order adverse to a habeas corpus petitioner, a certificate of
appealability must be issued or denied. See 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). As there is no
basis to issue a certificate of appealability, the certificate is denied.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 8th day of July 2014.
