Roy Lee Dunn, Petitioner-appellant, v. Jack Cowley, Respondent-appellee, 7 F.3d 1044 (10th Cir. 1993)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit - 7 F.3d 1044 (10th Cir. 1993)

Sept. 22, 1993

Before TACHA, BALDOCK and KELLY, Circuit Judges.2 



Petitioner appeals from the dismissal of his habeas corpus petition and denial of a certificate of probable cause. The parties are familiar with the facts and issues presented in this appeal and we will not restate them.

We find no error in the district court's holding that Mr. Dunn's second petition for a writ of habeas corpus constituted an abuse of the writ. Petitioner made no showing of cause and prejudice or factual innocence. See McCleskey v. Zant, 111 S. Ct. 1454, 1470 (1991); Rodriguez v. Maynard, 948 F.2d 684, 686-87 (10th Cir. 1991).

We GRANT petitioner's motion for leave to proceed on appeal in forma pauperis and his application for a certficate of probable cause.

We AFFIRM the dismissal of the petition.


After examining the briefs and appellate record, this panel has determined unanimously that oral argument would not materially assist the determination of this appeal. See Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 10th Cir. R. 34.1.9. The cause therefore is ordered submitted without oral argument


This order and judgment has no precedential value and shall not be cited, or used by any court within the Tenth Circuit, except for purposes of establishing the doctrines of the law of the case, res judicata, or collateral estoppel. 10th Cir. R. 36.3
