IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
November 5, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, RESPONDENT,
MIGUEL HERNANDEZ-MUNGUIA, MOVANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Morrison C. England, Jr. United States District Judge
Movant, a federal prisoner proceeding pro se, brings this motion to correct or set aside a criminal judgment pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255. Pending before the court is movant's request for a certificate of appealability (Doc. 408).
Movant has timely filed a notice of appeal of this court's denial of his motion under 28 U.S.C. § 2255. Before movant can appeal this decision, a certificate of appealability must issue under 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c). See Fed. R. App. P. 22(b); see also 28 U.S.C. § 2255. 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. See Fed. R. App. P. 22(b). For the reasons set forth in the magistrate judge's December 28, 2008, findings and recommendations, movant has not made a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that movant's request for a certificate of appealability (Doc. 408) is denied.
