PER CURIAM: Basil Akbar appeals the district court's orders accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge and denying relief on his 28 U.S.C. 2254 (2000) petition and denying reconsideration of that order. We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm substantially for the reasons stated by the district court.* Akbar v. Padula, No. 9:06-cv-00907-DCN We dispense with oral (D.S.C. Dec. 18, 2006; Jan. 16, 2007). argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the court and argument would not aid the decisional process. AFFIRMED We agree with Appellees that Akbar's second post-conviction motion filed on June 28, 1996 tolled the one-year limitations period until March 14, 2001. The district court's contrary conclusion was error. Nonetheless, Akbar's 2254 petition is still untimely. - 2 - *
