Order Denying Motion for Relief Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255 and Denying a Certificate of Appealability - For the reasons discussed in this Order, the motion of James F. Cochran 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, Mr. Cochran is not entitled to relief on his § 2255 motion. There was no ineffective assistance of counsel, no errors in the sentencing proceedings or calculations, and no judicial misconduct. Accordingly, his motion for relief pursuant to § 2255 is denied and this action is dismissed with prejudice. Judgment consistent with this Entry shall now issue and a copy of this Entry shall be docketed in No. 1:11-cr-00042-JMS-DML-2. For the reasons stated in this Entry, the Court denies a certificate of appealability. (SEE ENTRY). Copy to petitioner via US Mail. Signed by Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson on 5/16/2018.(APD)
