ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF'S MOTION TO EXTEND TIME TO FILE A NOTICE OF APPEAL AS MOOT AND DENYING PLAINTIFFS MOTION FOR A CERTIFICATE OF APPEALABILITY (ECF Nos. 65 & 68)
Plaintiff James Cato ("Plaintiff") is a prisoner proceeding pro se in a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On July 19, 2012, Plaintiff filed a motion to extend time to file a notice of appeal. (ECF No. 65.) Plaintiff has since filed a notice of appeal. (ECF No. 67.) Accordingly, Plaintiff's motion to extend time to file a notice of appeal should be denied.
On July 30, 2012, Plaintiff filed a motion for a certificate of appealability. (ECF No. 68.) A certificate of appealability is not required for actions like Plaintiff's 42 U.S.C. § 1983 civil rights action. Plaintiff's motion should be denied.
Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff's motion for an extension of time (ECF No 65) is DENIED as moot; and
2. Plaintiff's motion for a certificate of appealability (ECF No. 68) is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
