Burton v. Frakes
ORDER that the Motion to Extend Time to File An Application for Certificate of Appealability and Brief in Support of the Application 44 is denied. Ordered by Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr. (JSF)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
This matter is before the Court on respondent Karnell Burton’s (“Burton”) Motion
to Extend Time to File An Application for Certificate of Appealability and Brief in
Support of the Application (“Motion”) (Filing No. 44). This Court previously denied a
certificate of appealability in its March 17, 2017 Memorandum and Order (Filing No.

cannot alter the Eighth Circuit’s deadlines. 1 See Rule 11, Rules Governing Section 2254
Cases in the U.S. District Courts; 28 U.S.C. § 2253; and Fed. R. App. P. 22. The Motion
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated this 19th day of April, 2017.
BY THE COURT:
s/ Robert F. Rossiter, Jr.
United States District Judge
The Court may extend the time for a party to file a notice of appeal under Federal
Rule of Appellate Procedure 4, but Burton has already filed a notice of appeal.
