JACK DAVID COX,
(D.C. No. 96-CV-876-E)
Jack David Cox filed a petition under 28 U.S.C. § 2255 claiming that he was denied his Sixth Amendment right to effective assistance of counsel in his 1994 criminal trial. The district court denied the petition. Mr. Cox asks us to grant a certificate of appealability and reverse.
After review of the record in this case and the arguments set forth by petitioner, we are persuaded that the district court did not err in its careful and thorough analysis of Mr. Cox's contentions. Substantially for the reasons given by the district court in its Order filed May 28, 1998, we are persuaded Mr. Cox has not "made a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right" as required for the issuance of a certificate of appealability, 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2). We therefore DENY Mr. Cox's motion for a certificate and DISMISS the appeal.
