On February 19, 2008, the Court denied the instant petition on the merits and entered judgment in favor of Respondent. Petitioner filed a notice of appeal and the matter was forwarded to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. On May 18, 2010, the Ninth Circuit remanded this case for the limited purpose of granting or denying a certificate of appealability. See Hayward v. Marshall, No. 0655392, 2010 WL 1664977, at *5 (9th Cir. Apr. 22, 2010) (en banc) (overruling those portions of White v. Lambert, 370 F.3d 1002, 1004 (9th Cir. 2004), and Rosas v.

"Where a district court has rejected the constitutional claims on the merits, the showing required to satisfy 2253(c) is straightforward: the petitioner must demonstrate that reasonable jurists would find the district court's assessment of the constitutional claims debatable or wrong." Slack v. McDaniel, 529 U.S. 473, 484 (2000). The Court denied the instant habeas petition after careful consideration of the merits. The Court found no violation of Petitioner's federal constitutional rights in the administrative decision denying parole. Petitioner has failed to demonstrate that jurists of reason would find it debatable whether this Court was correct in its ruling. Accordingly, a certificate of appealability is DENIED. The clerk shall close the case and forward this order to the Ninth Circuit from which Petitioner may also seek a certificate of appealability. See United States v. Asrar, 116 F.3d 1268, 1270 (9th Cir. 1997).
