|UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,||No. 01-6114
(D.C. No. CIV-00-2065-A)
Without a certificate of appealability, we lack jurisdiction over this appeal. See 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c). For substantially the reasons stated by the district court, we hold that Rockford has not made a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right. We therefore DENY a certificate of appealability and DISMISS this appeal. We also DENY Rockford's motion for leave to proceed on appeal without prepayment of costs or fees.
ENTERED FOR THE COURT

*.After examining appellant's brief and the appellate record, this panel has determined unanimously that oral argument would not materially assist the determination of this appeal. See Fed. R. App. P. 34(a)(2) and 10th Cir. R. 34.1(G). The case is therefore ordered submitted without oral argument. This Order and Judgment is not binding precedent, except under the doctrines of law of the case, res judicata, and collateral estoppel. The court generally disfavors the citation of orders and judgments; nevertheless, an order and judgment may be cited under the terms and conditions of 10th Cir. R. 36.3.
1.The § 2255 motion does not appear to be included in our record. We have relied on the characterization of the motion in the district court opinion and in Rockford's appellate briefs. If Rockford believed the original motion was necessary to our resolution, it was his obligation to provide it to us.
