United States District Court, S.D. Georgia, Savannah Division
December 8, 2014
WILLIE F. QUARTERMAN, JR., Movant,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Respondent.
B. AVANT EDENFIELD, District Judge.
Before the Court is Willie Quarterman's Notice of Appeal from the decision of this Court. ECF No. 9. The Court construes a notice of appeal as a request for a Certificate of Appealability ("COA"). See Edwards v. United States, 114 F.3d 1083, 1084 (11th Cir. 1997). The Magistrate Judge issued a Report and Recommendation ("R&R"), in which the Judge recommended that Quarterman be denied a COA. ECF No. 3 at 4. The Court adopted the R&R as the opinion of the Court. ECF No. 7. Therefore, the COA is denied for the reasons set forth in the R&R.
Quarterman has not explicitly requested the right to appeal in forma pauperis ("IFP"). See ECF No. 7. However, the Court notes that it already denied Quarterman IFP status on appeal when it adopted the R&R. ECF No. 3 at 4. Therefore, Quarterman should be assessed the full filing fee of $505.
Quarterman's request for a COA, ECF No. 9, is DENIED.
