HOWARD PELLINGTON, Petitioner, -against- CHARLES GREINER, Respondent

DECISION AND ORDER

Petitioner Howard Pellington ("Pellington") filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus from this Court to overturn his conviction for murder in the second degree in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, Bronx County. In a Decision and Order dated March 10, 2004 the Court denied Pellington's petition.*fn1 Pellington now seeks a certificate of appealability. This Court may issue a certificate of appealability if the petitioner demonstrates "a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right." 28 U.S.C. ยง 2253. "A petitioner satisfies this standard by demonstrating that jurists of reason could disagree with the district court's resolution of his constitutional claims or that jurists could conclude the issues presented are adequate to deserve encouragement to proceed further." Miller-El v. Cockrell, 537 U.S. 322, 328 (2003). To obtain a certificate of appealability, the petitioner need not show that his appeal will succeed. Id. at 337. Accordingly, after consideration Page 2 of Pellington's arguments and applicable law and precedent, Pellington's motion for a certificate of appealability is granted.

SO ORDERED.
