Date Filed Document Text
October 31, 2017 Opinion or Order Filing 25 OPINION AND ORDER denying Motion to Vacate, Set Aside or Correct Sentence (2255). For the reasons stated herein, Drivas's petition for a writ of habeas corpus is denied on the basis of the existing record, without the need for a further ev identiary hearing. Since petitioner has not made a "substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right," a certificate of appealability shall not issue. 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2). The court certifies pursuant to 28 U.S.C.  7; 1915(a) that any appeal from this order would not be taken in good faith and therefore in forma pauperis relief is denied for the purpose of any appeal. See Coppedge v. United States, 369 U.S. 438 5 444-45 (1962). The Clerk of Court is directed to enter judgment for respondent. Ordered by Judge Nina Gershon on 10/31/2017. C/M (Barrett, C)
