Case 4:22-cv-00125-RSB-CLR Document 16 Filed 11/17/22 Page 1 of 1
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
CIVIL ACTION NO.: 4:22-cv-125
U.S. PROBATION OFFICE, et al.
After a careful de novo review of the entire record, the Court concurs with the Magistrate
Judge’s Report and Recommendation, (doc. 15), to which Petitioner Anthony Terry did not object.
Accordingly, the Court ADOPTS the Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation as the
opinion of the Court, GRANTS Respondents’ Motion to Dismiss, (doc. 10), and DISMISSES
Terry’s 28 U.S.C. § 2241 Petition. Applying the Certificate of Appealability (COA) standards,
which are set forth in Brown v. United States, 2009 WL 307872 at * 1-2 (S.D. Ga. Feb. 9, 2009),
the Court discerns no COA-worthy issues at this stage of the litigation, so no COA should issue.
28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(1); see Alexander v. Johnson, 211 F.3d 895, 898 (5th Cir. 2000) (approving
sua sponte denial of COA before movant filed a notice of appeal). And, as there are no nonfrivolous issues to raise on appeal, an appeal would not be taken in good faith. Thus, in forma
pauperis status on appeal is likewise DENIED. 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3). The Court DIRECTS
the Clerk of Court to CLOSE this case.
SO ORDERED, this 17th day of November, 2022.
R. STAN BAKER
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
