Bennett v. United States of America
ORDER denying 21 Plaintiff's Motion for Certificate of Appealability. Signed by District Judge Rodney W. Sippel on 8/18/15. (CAR)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
TAYLOR L. BENNETT,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
No. 4:14 CV 1438 RWS
Petitioner Taylor L. Bennett has filed a motion for a certificate of appealability. To grant
such certificate, the judge must find a substantial showing of the denial of a federal constitutional
right. 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2). Because Bennett has not made a substantial showing of the
denial of a federal constitutional right, this Court will not issue a certificate of appealability. See
Cox v. Norris, 133 F.3d 565, 569 (8th Cir. 1997) (citing Flieger v. Delo, 16 F.3d 878, 882-8 (8th
Cir. 1994)) (substantial showing must be debatable among reasonable jurists, reasonably subject
to a different outcome on appeal, or otherwise deserving of further proceedings).
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Taylor L. Bennett’s motion for a certificate of
appealability  is DENIED.
RODNEY W. SIPPEL
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
