Appeal: 16-7147 Doc: 5 Filed: 12/20/2016 Pg: 2 of 3 PER CURIAM: Yesenia Cortez Ramirez seeks to appeal the district court’s order denying relief on her 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (2012) petition. The district court referred this case to a pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) (2012). magistrate judge The magistrate judge recommended that relief be denied and advised Ramirez that failure to file timely, specific objections to this recommendation could waive appellate review of a district court order based upon the recommendation. The timely filing of specific objections to a magistrate judge’s recommendation is necessary to preserve appellate review of the substance of that recommendation when the parties have been warned of the consequences of noncompliance. Wright v. Collins, 766 F.2d 841, 845 46 (4th Cir. 1985); see also Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140 (1985). Ramirez has waived appellate review of her claims of ineffective assistance of counsel and actual innocence by failing to file specific objections after receiving proper notice. To the extent Ramirez filed specific objections to the magistrate judge’s statement that the court would not consider filings Ramirez had not signed, we conclude that Ramirez fails to make “a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right.” 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2) (2012); see Slack v. McDaniel, 529 U.S. 473, 484-85 (2000). 2 Appeal: 16-7147 Doc: 5 Accordingly, Filed: 12/20/2016 we dismiss the appeal. facts and materials legal before deny a Pg: 3 of 3 certificate of appealability and We dispense with oral argument because the contentions are adequately this and argument court presented would not in the aid the decisional process.
