Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Joe McKinley Jones, Jr., Plaintiff, Pro Se.

Wendy Kelley, Defendant, represented by Ashley Argo Priest , Arkansas Attorney General's Office.


P.K. HOLMES, III, Chief District Judge.

The Court has received a report and recommendation (Doc. 19) from United States Magistrate Judge Mark E. Ford. No objections have been filed and the deadline to file objections has passed. The Magistrate recommends that the Court deny Petitioner's motion for leave to appeal in forma pauperis because the Court has already declined to issue Petitioner a certificate of appealability. The Court has carefully reviewed this case. The Magistrate's report and recommendation appears proper, contains no clear error, and is ADOPTED IN ITS ENTIRETY.

IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT Petitioner's motion for leave to appeal in forma pauperis (Doc. 18) is DENIED.
