UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
January 19, 2006
LEON DUNCAN, PETITIONER,
BRIAN FISCHER, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gershon, United States District Judge
In a Report and Recommendation dated November 3, 2005, the Honorable Steven M. Gold has recommended denial of this petition for a writ of habeas corpus. Petitioner has filed objections which I find to be without merit. Magistrate Judge Gold's report is adopted in its entirety, as I agree fully with his well-reasoned analysis.
Petitioner's application for a writ of habeas corpus is denied. As petitioner has failed to make a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right, a certificate of appealability is denied pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c). Moreover, the court certifies, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3), that in forma pauperis status is denied for the purpose of an appeal. The Clerk of Court is directed to enter judgment in accordance with this order.
