the magistrate judge’s report and recommendation and what the court construes as the Petitioner’s

Accordingly, the court finds that the petition for writ of habeas corpus is due to be
DISMISSED for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. The court will enter a separate Final Judgment
DONE and ORDERED this 12th day of March, 2014.
