United States District Court, E.D. Missouri, Eastern Division
October 14, 2014
MARVIN COTTON, SR., Petitioner,
TERRY RUSSELL, Respondent.
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
RODNEY W. SIPPEL, District Judge.
This matter is before me on petitioner Marvin Cotton's motion for reconsideration or, in the alternative, for a certificate of appealability [#22]. On September 29, 2014, I overruled Cotton's objections to the Report and Recommendation and denied Cotton's petition for a writ of habeas corpus under 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Cotton's present motion presents no new factual or legal arguments that convince me my prior decision was in error, so it will be denied. To the extent Cotton seeks a certificate of appealability, that request is denied as moot as I have already denied him a certificate of appealability in the Memorandum and Order and Judgment dated September 29, 2014.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that petitioner's motion for certificate of appealability and reconsideration [#22] is denied.
