IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF GEORGIA ALBANY DIVISION WILLIAM R. JACKSON, Jr., : : Petitioner, : : v. : : ANTHONY WASHINGTON, Warden, : : Respondent. : : CASE NO.: 1:13-cv-2 (WLS) ORDER Petitioner William R. Jackson Jr. moves the Court to reconsider the denial of his petition for a writ of habeas corpus and certificate of appealability. (Doc. 36.) He apparently contends that he followed the requisite procedures and that the state and federal courts are discriminatory. Jackson fails to support these allegations with evidence or argument, and an independent review of the record shows that his petition was untimely. His motion for reconsideration is therefore DENIED. 1 Also pending is a Motion for Leave to Appeal in Forma Pauperis. (Doc. 38.) Because the Court previously denied Jackson a certificate of appealability (Doc. 34), however, his motion for leave to appeal in forma pauperis is DENIED as moot. SO ORDERED, this 17th day of January, 2014. /s/ W. Louis Sands W. LOUIS SANDS, JUDGE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT Even though Jackson filed a notice of appeal, the Court retains jurisdiction to deny his motion. Mahone v. Ray, 326 F.3d 1176, 1179–80 (11th Cir. 2003). 1 1
