IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 16, 2010
BILLY COY COCHRAN, PETITIONER,
MATTHEW KRAMER, WARDEN RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Charles R. Breyer United States District Judge
ORDER DENYING CERTIFICATE OF APPEALABILITY
On January 25, 2010, this Court granted Petitioner's habeas petition as to one of nine asserted grounds. Petitioner has now filed a Request for 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 made "a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right." 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2). Petitioner has not demonstrated that "reasonable jurists would find the district court's assessment of the constitutional claims debatable or wrong." 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).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
