UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
August 8, 2012
CHRISTOPHER GENE SUMMERS, PETITIONER,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Valerie Baker Fairbank United States District Judge
ORDER ACCEPTING REPORT AND ADOPTING FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS OF UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636, the Court has reviewed the Petition, the records on file, and the Report and Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge and has considered de novo the portions of the Report as to which objections have been filed. The Court accepts the Magistrate Judge's Report and adopts it as its own findings and conclusions.
Further, to the extent that Petitioner is challenging his sentence, the Court finds that Petitioner has not made a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right and, therefore, a certificate of appealability is denied. See Porter v. Adams, 244 F.3d 1006, 1007 (9th Cir. 2001) (holding petitioner who raises claims challenging the legality of his conviction or sentence, as opposed to the execution of his sentence, may not seek habeas relief under section 2241 on appeal without a certificate of appealability); 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2); Fed. R. App. P. 22(b).
