That motion was denied (Doc. 6), and now Plaintiff has filed a notice of appeal, accompanied by a motion for issuance of a certificate of appealability (Doc. 7). Plaintiff's civil rights action is neither a proceeding under section 2255, nor is it a habeas corpus proceeding in which the detention complained of arises out of process issued by a state court. Consequently, no certificate of appealability is necessary for him to perfect his appeal. FED.R.APP.P. 22(b); 28 U.S.C. 2253(c). Accordingly, the instant motion is DENIED as MOOT. IT IS SO ORDERED. DATED this 20th day of October, 2008. s/ Michael J. Reagan MICHAEL J. REAGAN United States District Judge
