JOHN T. RATHMAN,
This case is a petition for a writ of habeas corpus brought by the petitioner
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241. The respondent’s answer to the petition was treated by
the court as a motion for summary judgment. (Docs. 4, 5). The magistrate judge filed
a report and recommendation on April 2, 2014, recommending that the defendant’s
motion for summary judgment be granted and this cause be dismissed. (Doc. 9 at 9).
No objections have been filed by any party.
Having carefully reviewed and considered de novo all the materials in the court
file, including the report and recommendation, the court is of the opinion that the
magistrate judge’s report is due to be and is hereby ADOPTED and his
recommendation is ACCEPTED. The Court EXPRESSLY FINDS that there are no
genuine issues of material fact and that the defendants are entitled to judgment as a
matter of law. Accordingly, defendants’ motion for summary judgment is due to be
GRANTED and the petition for writ of habeas corpus is due to be DISMISSED
WITH PREJUDICE. A Final Judgment will be entered.
DONE this the 22nd day of April, 2014.
