JOHN BRILEY, Petitioner,
RAY HOBBS, Director, Arkansas Department of Correction, Respondent.
BRIAN S. MILLER, District Judge.
The recommended disposition submitted by United States Magistrate Judge Beth Deere and plaintiff's objections thereto have been reviewed. After a careful consideration of the objections and a de novo review of the record, it is concluded that the recommended disposition should be, and hereby is, approved and adopted in its entirety in all respects.
The amended petition for writ of habeas corpus [Doc. No. 4] pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 filed by John Riley is dismissed with prejudice. In § 2254 cases, a certificate of appealability may issue only if a petitioner has made a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right. 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(1)-(2). As there is no issue on which petitioner has made a substantial showing of a denial of a constitutional right, a certificate of appealability is denied.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
