IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR
THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
CHAD BRANDON SMITH,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
) CASE NO. 2:10-CV-553-WKW
On August 10, 2012, the Magistrate Judge filed a Recommendation in this case
(Doc. # 17), to which Petitioner Chad Brandon Smith filed an Objection (Doc. # 18).
Based upon an independent and de novo review of those portions of the
Recommendation to which objection is made, 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1), the court finds
that the Objection mirrors in large part Mr. Smith’s prior arguments, that the
Recommendation adequately addresses and properly rejects the underpinnings of Mr.
Smith’s Objection without need for further elaboration here, and that the Objection
lacks merit. Accordingly, it is ORDERED as follows:
Mr. Smith’s Objection (Doc. # 18) is OVERRULED.
The Recommendation (Doc. # 17) is ADOPTED.
Mr. Smith’s 28 U.S.C. § 2255 motion is DENIED, as the claims entitle
him no relief.
An appropriate judgment will be entered.
DONE this 1st day of November, 2012.
/s/ W. Keith Watkins
