MEMORANDUM OPINION - On December 12, 2017, 21 Report and Report and Recommendation was filed by the United States Magistrate Judge recommending that this court grant the motion to dismiss, and deny the other motions as moot. The petitioner filed 22 objections to the R&R. On February 20, 2018, by 23 Memorandum Opinion, this court adopted the R&R, and issued an order granting respondents' motion, and dismissing as moot petitioner's remaining motions 25. That same day, this court entered final judgment in this matter pursuant to Rule 58 of the Rules of Federal Procedure.In adopting the R&R, this court agreed with the determination of the Magistrate Judge that, although petitioner is presently incarcerated, he is not "in custody" on a sentence related to the 1992 convictions and is, therefore, ineligible for habeas corpus relief with respect to those cases. See 28 U.S.C.A. § 2254 (a). Via the order dated February 20, 2018, Petitioner was notified of his appellate rights pursuant to Rule 4(a)(1) of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure. Neither the Order nor the R&R addressed the appealability of this matter. Section 2253(c)(1)(A) of the United States Code provides that an appeal may not be taken from a final order in a habeas proceeding in which the detention complained of arises out of process issued by a state court unless a certificate of appealability has been issued. A certificate of appealability should be issued only when a petioy Flowers Conti on 3/19/2018.

An appropriate order follows. Signed by Chief Judge J
