U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
PAUL WILFORD BALL,
LEON BOLLING, Warden, et al.,
Case No.: 2:17-cv-00207-LSC-SGC
This is a pro se petition for writ of habeas corpus filed by Paul Wilford Ball pursuant to
28 U.S.C. § 2254. (Doc. 1). On October 25, 2017, the magistrate judge entered a report
recommending the petition be dismissed for failure to state a claim for federal habeas relief.
(Doc. 6). Pursuant to Rule 11 of the Rules Governing 2254 Proceedings, the report further
recommended denial of a certificate of appealability. (Id. at 5). On November 6, 2017, the
petitioner filed objections. (Doc. 7). However, the petitioner's objections do not address any of
the deficiencies noted in the report and recommendation.
After careful consideration of the record in this case and the magistrate judge’s report, the
court ADOPTS the report of the magistrate judge and ACCEPTS her recommendations. In
accordance with the recommendation, the court finds the petition is due to be dismissed for
failure to state a claim for federal habeas relief. A certificate of appealability is due to be denied.
A separate order will be entered.
DONE and ORDERED on November 14, 2017.
L. Scott Coogler
United States District Judge
