Williams v. Pliler

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA


August 7, 2008

RICHARD ALEX WILLIAMS, PETITIONER,
v.
C.K. PLILER, WARDEN, ET AL., RESPONDENTS.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: John A. Mendez United States District Judge

ORDER

Petitioner, a state prisoner proceeding through counsel, has timely filed a notice of appeal of this court's March 17, 2008 denial of his application for a writ of habeas corpus. Before petitioner can appeal this decision, a certificate of appealability must issue. 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c); Fed. R. App. P. 22(b).

A certificate of appealability may issue under 28 U.S.C. § 2253 "only if the applicant has made a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right." 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2). The court must either issue a certificate of appealability indicating which issues satisfy the required showing or must state the reasons why such a certificate should not issue. Fed. R. App. P. 22(b).

For the reasons set forth in the magistrate judge's December 20, 2006 findings and recommendations, petitioner has not made a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right. Accordingly, a certificate of appealability should not issue in this action.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
