ORDER DISMISSING THE PETITION
The magistrate judge filed his report and recommendation on April 25, 2012, recommending

that the magistrate judge's report is due to be ADOPTED and the recommendation ACCEPTED.
It is therefore ORDERED that the petition for habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §
2254 in the above-styled cause be and hereby is DENIED and DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
Done this 18th day of May 2012.
