NICK J. LUDWICK, Respondent-Appellee. ____________________________________/ ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) Jan 09, 2014 DEBORAH S. HUNT, Clerk ON APPEAL FROM THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN Before: GUY, GIBBONS, ROGERS, Circuit Judges. PER CURIAM. Petitioner, Steven Williams, appeals the district court’s denial of his petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 concerning his claim that the state court unreasonably applied federal law to his claim of ineffective assistance of counsel. Because the district court issued a thorough written opinion which correctly stated the governing law and facts of the case, and because issuance of a full opinion would be both duplicative and serve no jurisprudential purpose, we AFFIRM the judgment on the basis of the district court’s opinion entered on January 15, 2013. Williams v. Ludwick, No. 09-13558, 2013 WL 153321 (E.D. Mich. Jan. 15, 2013). AFFIRMED.
