MEMORANDUM and ORDER: The Court finds that the AEDPA statute of limitations has long-since expired and that there are insufficient grounds for equitable tolling. Accordingly, the petition for a writ of habeas corpus is dismissed as time-barred. A certificate of appealability shall not issue because petitioner has not made a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right. See 28 U.S.C. section 2253(c)(2); Lucidore v. New York State Div. of Parole, 209 F.3d 107, 112-13 (2d Cir. 2000). The Court certifies pursuant to 28 U.S.C. section 1915(a) that any appeal from a judgment denying the instant petition would not be taken in good faith. Coppedge v. United States, 369 U.S. 438 (1962). Ordered by Judge Sandra L. Townes on 06/03/2008. (Pastore, F. Alan) (Chambers mailed hard copy to incarcerated pro se petitioner.)
