United States District Court, E.D. Arkansas, Pine Bluff Division
July 14, 2015
MELVIN EARL SIMS, Plaintiff,
DAMETRIA ROCHELLE, et al., Defendants.
BRIAN S. MILLER, District Judge.
The recommended disposition from Magistrate Judge Beth Deere has been received. No objections have been filed. After careful consideration, it is concluded that the recommended disposition should be, and hereby is, approved and adopted in its entirety. Sims's petition for writ of habeas corpus [Doc. No. 2] is dismissed without prejudice.
When entering a final order adverse to a habeas corpus petitioner, a certificate of appealability must be issued or denied. Rule 11 of the Rules Governing Section 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). In this case, there is no basis to issue a certificate of appealability. Accordingly, a certificate of appealability is denied.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
