Webster’s petition for the writ of habeas corpus (ECF No. 1) is DENIED, and this matter is
As explained in the Memorandum Opinion, the Court finds that the issues raised in the §
2254 petition do not “deserve encouragement to proceed further.” Miller-El v. Cockrell, 537 U.S.

petitioner may, however, seek a COA directly from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. Fed. R.

This is a final order for purposes of Fed. R. Civ. P. 58.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
