Mitchell v. State

June 13, 2007

PAULA B. MITCHELL, PETITIONER,
v.
STATE OF ILLINOIS AND SANGAMON COUNTY ADULT PROBATION DEPT., RESPONDENTS.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Richard Mills, U.S. District Judge

OPINION

In an Opinion and Order entered on May 22, 2007, the Court denied Paula B. Mitchell's petition under 28 U.S.C. § 2254 for a writ of habeas corpus. Pending is the Petitioner's motion for a certificate of appealability.

Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(1)(A) and Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 22(b)(1), the district court must issue a certificate of appealability authorizing the appeal of the denial of a post-conviction petition for a writ of habeas corpus. "A certificate of appealability may issue under paragraph (1) only if the applicant has made a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right." 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2). The Court concludes that the Petitioner has made no such showing.

Ergo, the Petitioner's motion for the issuance of a certificate of appealability [d/e 5] is DENIED.
