IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
HAROLD BUTTS, JR.,
NO. C11-5758 TEH
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
Having denied Petitioner’s request for habeas relief, this Court must issue or deny a
12 certificate of appealability pursuant to Rule 11(a) of the Rules Governing Section 2254
13 Cases. The Court DENIES a certificate of appealability because Petitioner has failed to
14 make a “substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right” on any of his claims.
15 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2); see also Slack v. McDaniel, 529 U.S. 473, 483-84 (2000) (explaining
16 that an applicant satisfies this standard where he or she shows that reasonable jurists could
17 find the issues debatable or that the issues are “adequate to deserve encouragement to
18 proceed further”) (quoting Barefoot v. Estelle, 463 U.S. 880, 893 n.4 (1983)). Petitioner may
19 not appeal the denial of a certificate of appealability “but may seek a certificate from the
20 court of appeals under Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 22.” Rule 11(a) of the Rules
21 Governing Section 2254 Cases.
23 IT IS SO ORDERED.
25 Dated: 04/16/12
