United States District Court, Southern District of New York
April 2, 2003
JAMES PIGGOTT, MOVANT, AGAINST UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Thomas P. Griesa, United States District Judge
On January 7, 2003 the court denied movant's motion under 28 U.S.C. § 2255. On January 31, 2003 movant applied for reconsideration. On February 24, 2003 movant filed a notice of appeal, and on March 17, 2003 he filed a motion for leave to appeal in forma pauperis.
The motion for reconsideration is denied.
As to the appeal, the moving party has not made a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right. Therefore a certificate of appealability will not issue. 28 U.S.C. § 2253.
In respect to the in forma pauperis statute, the court certifies that an appeal would not be taken in good faith. 28 U.S.C. § 1915 (a)(3).
