conclusions, and recommendation for plain error. Finding no error, the court

Considering the record in this case and pursuant to Federal Rule of Appellate
Procedure 22(b), Rule 11(a) of the Rules Governing §§ 2254 and 2255 proceedings,
and 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c), the court DENIES a certificate of appealability. The court

issue or deny a certificate of appealability when it enters a
final order adverse to the applicant. Before entering the
final order, the court may direct the parties to submit
arguments on whether a certificate should issue. If the
court issues a certificate, the court must state the specific
issue or issues that satisfy the showing required by 28
U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2). If the court denies a certificate, the
parties may not appeal the denial but may seek a certificate
from the court of appeals under Federal Rule of Appellate
Procedure 22. A motion to reconsider a denial does not
extend the time to appeal.
(b) Time to Appeal. Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure
4(a) governs the time to appeal an order entered under
these rules. A timely notice of appeal must be filed even if
the district court issues a certificate of appealability.
