CIVIL CASE NO. 3:18-CV-2956-K

07-09-2019

MANKENGO VERNON MWALUMBA, PETITIONER, v. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, RESPONDENT.


ORDER ACCEPTING FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATION OF THE UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE

The United States Magistrate Judge made Findings, Conclusions, and a Recommendation in this case. Petitioner filed Objections (Doc. No. 17) and a Notice of Appeal, which appears to be further objections, and the Court has made a de novo review of those portions of the proposed findings and recommendation to which objection was made. The objections are OVERRULED, and the Court ACCEPTS the Findings, Conclusions, and Recommendation of the United States Magistrate Judge.

IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the petition for writ of error coram nobis is DENIED.

The Court prospectively CERTIFIES that any appeal of this action would not be taken in good faith. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3); FED. R. APP. P. 24(a)(3). In support of this certification, the Court adopts and incorporates by reference the Magistrate Judge's Findings, Conclusions, and Recommendation. See Baugh v. Taylor, 117 F.3d 197, 202 and n.21 (5th Cir. 1997). Based on the Findings and Recommendation, the Court finds that any appeal of this action would present no legal point of arguable merit and would, therefore, be frivolous. Howard v. King, 707 F.2d 215, 220 (5th Cir. 1983) Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 4(a) governs the time to appeal an order. A timely notice of appeal must be filed even if the court certifies an appeal as not taken in good faith.. In the event of an appeal, Plaintiff may challenge this certification by filing a separate motion to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal with the Clerk of the Court, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. See Baugh, 117 F.3d at 202; FED. R. APP. P. 24(a)(5).

If petitioner files a notice of appeal, petitioner must pay the $505.00 appellate filing fee or submit a motion to proceed in forma pauperis.

SO ORDERED.

Signed July 9th, 2019.
