UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
Case No. 4:14 CV 949 RWS
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before the Court on the petition for writ of habeas corpus
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. ' 2254 filed by Derrick Williamson. The Court 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
June 1, 2017, Judge Collins filed her 17-page Report and Recommendation that
petitioner=s habeas petition should be denied. . No objections to the Report
and Recommendation were filed despite petitioner being granted a two-month
extension of time to do so. .
After careful consideration, I will adopt and
sustain Judge Collins’ thorough Report and Recommendation in its entirety.
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 petitioner
has not made such a showing, I will not issue a certificate of appealability.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Report and Recommendation filed on
June 1, 2017  is adopted and sustained in its entirety.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Petitioner’s Petition for Writ of Habeas
Corpus  is denied.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Court will not issue a certificate of
A separate judgment in accordance with this Memorandum and Order is
entered this same date.
