UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
(a) Certificate of Appealability. The district court
must issue or deny a certificate of appealability when
it enters a final order adverse to the applicant.
Before entering the final order, the court may direct
the parties to submit arguments on whether a
certificate should issue. If the court issues a
certificate, the court must state the specific issue or
issues that satisfy the showing required by 28 U.S.C. §
2253(c)(2). If the court denies a certificate, the
parties may not appeal the denial but may seek a
certificate from the court of appeals under Federal
Rule of Appellate Procedure 22. A motion to reconsider
a denial does not extend the time to appeal.
(b) Time to Appeal. Federal Rule of Appellate
Procedure 4(a) governs the time to appeal an order
entered under these rules. A timely notice of appeal
must be filed even if the district court issues a
certificate of appealability.
