IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
July 21, 2008
HERMAN TIEMENS, JR., PETITIONER,
MIKE KNOWLES, ACTING WARDEN, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Charles R. Breyer United States District Judge
ORDER DENYING CERTIFICATE OF APPEALABILITY
Petitioner has filed a notice of appeal which the court also construes as a request for a certificate of appealability under 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c) and Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 22(b). A certificate of appealability is DENIED because petitioner has not demonstrated that "jurists of reason would find it debatable whether the petition states a valid claim of the denial of a constitutional right and that jurists of reason would find it debatable whether the district court was correct in its procedural ruling." Slack v. McDaniel, 529 U.S. 473, 484 (2000). The clerk shall forward to the court of appeals the case file with this order. See United States v. Asrar, 116 F.3d 1268, 1270 (9th Cir. 1997).
