Entry Discussing Motion for Relief Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255 and Denying Certificate of Appealability as to Defendant EDWARD MCDONALD (1) - For the reasons explained in this Entry, the motion of Edward McDonald for relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255 must be denied and the action dismissed with prejudice. In addition, the Court finds that a certificate of appealability should not issue. For the reasons explained in this Entry McDonald has failed to show that he is entitled to the relief he seeks and his motion for relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255 must be denied. Judgment consistent with this Entry shall now issue. The clerk is directed to docket a copy of this Entry in the underlying criminal case, Case No. 1:14-cr-81-JMS-DML-1. Pursuant to Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 22(b), Rule 11(a) of the Rules Governing §2255 proceedings, and 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c), the court finds that McDonald has failed to show that reasonable jurists would find "it debatable whether the petition states a valid claim of the denial of a constitutional right." Slack v. McDaniel, 529 U.S. 473, 484 (2000). The Court therefore denies a certificate of appealability. (See Order). Signed by Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson on 7/3/2017.(APD) Modified on 7/3/2017 (APD).
