IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF GEORGIA SAVANNAH DIVISION QUINTON J. WILLIAMS, Petitioner, CIVIL ACTION NO.: 4:22-cv-93 v. (Formerly 4:18-cr-264) UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Respondent. ORDER After a careful de novo review of the entire record, the Court concurs with the Magistrate Judge's April 28, 2022, Report and Recommendation, (doc. 3), to which Petitioner has not filed an objection. The Court ADOPTS the Report and Recommendation as its opinion. For the reasons discussed by the Magistrate Judge, Williams’ 28 U.S.C. § 2255 motion, (doc. 1), is DENIED. There are no discernable issues worthy of a certificate of appeal. Therefore, the Court DENIES the issuance of a Certificate of Appealability. Williams is advised that he “may not appeal the denial but may seek a certificate from the court of appeals under Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 22.” Rule 11(a), Rules Governing Section 2255 Cases in the United States District Courts. Furthermore, as there are no non-frivolous issues to raise on appeal, an appeal would not be taken in good faith. Thus, the Court likewise DENIES Williams in forma pauperis status on appeal. The Court DIRECTS the Clerk of Court to CLOSE this case and enter the appropriate judgment of dismissal. SO ORDERED, this 28th day of July, 2022. R. STAN BAKER UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
