Jones v. Kelly
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS 16 ; the petition for writ of habeas corpus 2 is denied and dismissed with prejudice; a certificate of appealability is denied. Signed by Judge Billy Roy Wilson on 4/29/15. (tjb)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
DAVID LEE JONES
CASE NO.: 5:15CV00038 BRW/BD
WENDY KELLEY, Director,
Arkansas Department of Correction
The Court has reviewed the Recommended Disposition (“Recommendation”) filed by
Magistrate Judge Beth Deere. In addition, the Court has considered Mr. Jones’s objections to
the Recommendation and has reviewed de novo those portions of the record relating to Mr.
Jones’s objections. After careful consideration, this Court adopts the Recommendation as its
own. Petitioner David Lee Jones’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, the Court must issue or
deny a certificate of appealability. 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 29th day of April, 2015.
