Mays v. United States

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS


January 31, 2006

KENDEL MAYS, PETITIONER/DEFENDANT,
v.
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, RESPONDENT/PLAINTIFF.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Murphy, Chief District Judge

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

Before the Court is Petitioner's notice of appeal (Doc. 10). Implicit in that document is a request for issuance of a certificate of appealability. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2253, a certificate of appealability may issue "only if the applicant has made a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right."

The notice of appeal does not identify any grounds for this Court to issue a certificate of appealability. In fact, the notice of appeal does not even mention a certificate of appealability. In reviewing the record of this case, the Court finds that Petitioner has not made "a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right." Accordingly, the Court DECLINES to issue a certificate of appealability.

IT IS SO ORDERED.

G. PATRICK MURPHY Chief United States District Judge
