UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN SOUTHERN DIVISION RICKY JONES, Petitioner, CIVIL ACTION NO. 12-11770 HONORABLE GEORGE CARAM STEEH v. DEBRA SCUTT, Respondent. / ORDER DENYING MOTION FOR CERTIFICATE OF APPEALABILITY [DKT. # 12] AS MOOT This is a habeas case under 28 U.S.C. ยง 2254. Petitioner filed a pro se petition for writ of habeas corpus raising several claims for relief. On December 4, 2012, the Court issued an Opinion and Order dismissing the petition. The Opinion also specifically denied Petitioner a certificate of appealability. Before the Court is Petitioner's "motion for a certificate of appealability." If it was Petitioner's intention to file this motion in the Sixth Circuit, he filed it in the wrong court. This Court has already determined in the opinion dismissing the petition that Petitioner is not entitled to a certificate of appealability. The motion is therefore DENIED AS MOOT. SO ORDERED. Dated: January 30, 2013 s/George Caram Steeh GEORGE CARAM STEEH UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE CERTIFICATE OF SERVICE Copies of this Order were served upon attorneys of record on January 30, 2013, by electronic and/or ordinary mail and also on Ricky Jones, #170445, G.
