ORDER APPROVING AND ADOPTING 16 PROPOSED FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS in its entirety in all respects; denying as moot 22 motion for reconsideration; and denying a certificate of appealability. Signed by Chief Judge Brian S. Miller on 02/03/2015. (rhm)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
WALTER LEE WALTON,
CASE NO. 5:14CV00205 BSM
RAY HOBBS, Director,
Arkansas Department of Correction
The recommended disposition filed by United States Magistrate Judge Joe J. Volpe
has been reviewed, along with the objections thereto. After careful consideration and a de
novo review of the record, the recommended disposition should be, and hereby is, approved
and adopted in its entirety in all respects. Accordingly, Walter Lee Walton’s petition for writ
of habeas corpus [Doc. No. 2] is denied and dismissed with prejudice, and his motion for
reconsideration [Doc. No. 22] is denied as moot.
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 2554
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 no such
showing has been made, a certificate of appealability is denied.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 3rd day of February 2015.
