Gilmore v. Emanuel County Jail

United States District Court, S.D. Georgia, Statesboro Division

February 9, 2015

PAUL GILMORE, JR., Plaintiff,
v.
EMANUEL COUNTY JAIL, et al., Respondent.

ORDER

B. AVANT EDENFIELD, District Judge.

Before the Court is Paul Gilmore's Notice of Appeal. ECF No. 22. 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). Under Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 4(a), a notice of appeal must be filed "within 30 days after entry of the judgment." Fed R. App. P. 4(a)(1)(A). "This 30-day time limit is mandatory and jurisdictional." Browder v. Dir., Dep't of Corr. of Illinois, 434 U.S. 257, 264 (1978) (quoting United States v. Robinson, 361 U.S. 220, 229 (1960)). The clerk entered a judgment in this case on June 12, 2014, ECF No. 20; Gilmore requested a COA more than six months later, on February 6, 2015, ECF No. 21.

Therefore, Gilmore's request for a COA, ECF No. 22, is untimely and must be DENIED.
