November 14, 2013 26 Opinion or Order of the Court Entry Discussing Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus and Denying Certificate of Appealability - For the reasons explained in this Entry, the petition of Kent Easley for a writ of habeas corpus must be denied. Easley's Show Cause and Motion for Summary Judgment Supported by Evidence and Sworn Oath [dkt. 17] is denied. The parties' strident arguments about procedural default are not jurisdictional in nature. The better course here is for the merits of Easley's claim to be add ressed. Judgment consistent with this Entry shall now issue. In addition, the court finds that the certificate of appealability should not issue. (See Entry.) Copy to petitioner via US Mail. Signed by Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson on 11/14/2013. (RSF)
