certificate of appealability [#19]. Petitioner has previously been granted leave to proceed in
forma pauperis in this matter, as such, his motion to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal will be
Also before the Court is petitioner’s motion for certificate of appealability. Petitioner has
failed to make (1) a showing that reasonable jurists would find it debatable whether the Court=s
procedural ruling was correct, see Slack v. McDaniel, 529 U.S. 473, 484-85 (2000), or (2) a
substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right, such that reasonable jurists would find

adequate to deserve encouragement to proceed further, Miller-El v. Cockrell, 537 U.S. 322, 336
(2003). Thus, the Court will not issue a certificate of appealability. 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c).
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that petitioner’s motion to proceed in forma pauperis on
appeal is GRANTED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that petitioner’s motion for a certificate of appealability
