RAY HOBBS, Director,
Arkansas Department of Correction
The Court has carefully reviewed the record in this case, the Recommended
Disposition received from Magistrate Judge Beth Deere, and the objections to the
recommendation filed by Mr. Viveros. The Court adopts Judge Deere’s recommendation
and dismisses Mr. Viveros’s 28 U.S.C. § 2254 petition for writ of habeas corpus (docket
entry #1) with prejudice.
When entering a final order adverse to a petitioner, the Court must issue or deny a
certificate of appealability. See Rule 11 of the Rules Governing Section 2254 Cases in
the United States District Court. 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, Mr. Viveros has not provided a basis for this court
to issue a certificate of appealability. Accordingly, a certificate of appealability is denied.
IT IS SO ORDERED, this
September , 2011.
