Michael Harrison Hunt seeks to appeal the district court’s order denying relief on
his 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (2012) petition. The district court referred this case to a magistrate
judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) (2012). The magistrate judge recommended
dismissing the petition as successive and advised Hunt that failure to file timely objections
to this recommendation could waive appellate review of a district court order based upon
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). Hunt has
waived appellate review by failing to file objections. Accordingly, we deny a certificate
of appealability, deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis, and dismiss the appeal.
We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are
adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the
