October 2, 2013 21 Opinion or Order of the Court MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER. For the foregoing reasons, the Petition is DENIED and DISMISSED. It is somewhat unclear whether a certificate of appealability would be required for Atkinson to appeal from the Court's decision. Compare, e.g., Drax v. Reno, 338 F.3d 98, 106 n.12 (2d Cir. 2003) (reaffirming that the requirement for a certificate of appealability "does not apply to federal habeas proceedings, such as the instant one, brought pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241"), with Ces pedes v. United States, No. 01-CV-2249 (ILG), 2001 WL 811929, at *1 (E.D.N.Y. June 11, 2001) (noting that the Second Circuit had granted a certificate of appealability in connection with the petitioner's appeal from a prior order treating his Se ction 2241 petition as a Section 2255 petition). To the extent the requirement does apply, Petitioner has not made a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right and, accordingly, a certificate of appealability will not issue. See 28 U .S.C. § 2253; see also Lozada v. United States, 107 F.3d 1011, 1014-16 (2d Cir. 1997), abrogated on other grounds by United States v. Perez, 129 F.3d 255, 259-60 (2d Cir. 1997). Moreover, this Court certifies pursuant to Title 28, United States Code, Section 1915(a)(3) that any appeal from this Order would not be taken in good faith, and in forma pauperis status is thus denied. See Coppedge v. United States, 369 U.S. 438, 444-45 (1962). The Clerk of the Court is directed to close the case. (Signed by Judge Jesse M. Furman on 10/2/2013) (lmb)
