IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the petition for habeas corpus relief is denied without prejudice to refile after exhausting all state court remedies and dismissed without an evidentiary hearing.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that because petitioner has not met statutory requirements to have his case heard, and no reasonable jurist could find this ruling debatable, and because petitioner fails to demonstrate denial of a constitutional right, a certificate of appealability is denied.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of Court shall close this matter for statistical purposes.

JAMES KNOLL GARDNER
