The Court concludes that the petitioner's objections to the Report and Recommendation should be overruled inasmuch as the Magistrate Judge correctly determined both that the petition was filed almost eight years after the one-year limitations period mandated by 28 U.S.C. 2244(d)(1) expired on March 2, 2001, and that the petitioner has failed to demonstrate any entitlement to equitable tolling of the limitations period given that he has not shown that he was pursuing his rights diligently during the time period he is seeking to toll or 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 that any extraordinary circumstances beyond his control made it impossible for him to file a timely federal habeas petition.
