UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
THOMAS C. MCGEE,
Case No. 4:11CV2212 SNLJ
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before me on the petition for writ of habeas corpus filed by Petitioner
Thomas C. McGee. I referred this matter to United States Magistrate Judge Noelle C. Collins, for
a report and recommendation on all dispositive matters pursuant to 28 U.S.C. ' 636(b). On
December 24, 2014, Judge Noelle C. Collins filed her recommendation that McGee=s habeas
petition should be dismissed.
No objections to Judge Noelle C. Collins’ Report and Recommendation were filed. After
careful consideration, I will adopt and sustain the thorough reasoning of Judge Collins and deny
McGee=s habeas petition for the reasons stated in the Report and Recommendation dated
December 24, 2014.
I have also considered whether to issue a certificate of appealability. To grant a certificate
of appealability, the Court must find a substantial showing of the denial of a federal
constitutional right. See Tiedeman v. Benson, 122 F.3d 518, 522 (8th Cir. 1997). A substantial
showing is a showing that issues are debatable among reasonable jurists, a Court could resolve
the issues differently, or the issues deserve further proceedings. Cox v. Norris, 133 F.3d 565, 569
(8th Cir. 1997) (citing Flieger v. Delo, 16 F.3d 878, 882-83 (8th Cir. 1994). Because McGee has
not made such a showing in this case, I will not issue a certificate of appealability.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Judge Noelle C. Collins= Report and Recommendation,
#19, filed on December 24, 2014 is adopted and sustained in its entirety.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Petitioner Thomas C. McGee=s Petition for Writ of
Habeas Corpus, #1, is DENIED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Court will not issue a certificate of appealability.
A separate Judgment in accordance with this Memorandum and Order is entered this
Dated this 12th day of January, 2015.
STEPHEN N. LIMBAUGH, JR.
