DENIED. The court has also considered the “supplemental citations” as set ut in petitioner’s Notice of
Supplemental Citations” (Doc. # 45).
Having carefully reviewed and considered de novo all of the materials in the court file, the Court

recommendation is ACCEPTED. To the extent that the petitioner’s filings of September 16, 2013, and
October 7, 2013 (Docs. # 40, 42), are construed as interposing objections to the report and
recommendation, such objections are due to be and hereby are OVERRULED. To the extent that the
petitioner filings (Docs. # 40, 42) are construed as motions, they are due to be and hereby are DENIED.
Accordingly, the petition for writ of habeas corpus is due to be DENIED. A Final Judgment will be
