Aspey issued a Report and Recommendation ("R & R") on Petitioner's Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus. (Doc. 21). On December 13, 2010, Petitioner filed a document stating he objected to the Magistrate Judge's conclusions and he needed more time to file additional objections.

Where any party has filed timely objections to the magistrate judge's report and recommendations, the district court's review of the part objected to is to be de novo. Id.
