OPINION, MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before the Court upon review of petitioner’s petition for writ
of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 [Doc. #1].
Petitioner is challenging an October 1, 2008 conviction entered in Scott

14, 2012, and which is currently pending in this Court. See Rothman v. Johnson,
4:12-CV-1674-DDN (E.D.Mo.). As a result, the instant action will be dismissed,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the instant 28 U.S.C. § 2254 action is
DISMISSED, without prejudice, as duplicative.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that no certificate of appealability shall
issue. See 28 U.S.C. § 2253.
A separate Order of Dismissal shall accompany this Memorandum and
Dated this 25th day of October, 2012.
