IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF ARIZONA
James Pierre Williams,
Unknown Sterns, et al.,
Before the Court is the Report and Recommendation (“R&R”) of Magistrate Judge
James F. Metcalf, (Doc. 25), regarding Petitioner’s Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus
filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254, (Doc. 1). The R&R recommends that the petition be
denied and dismissed with prejudice. The Magistrate Judge advised the parties that they
had fourteen days to file objections to the R&R. (Doc. 25 at 46-47 (citing Fed. R. Civ. P.
72(b)).) Petitioner filed his “Notice of Objection to Report and Recommendation of
Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus” on September 8, 2015. (Doc. 26.)
The Court has considered the objections and reviewed the R&R de novo. See Fed.
R. Civ. P. 72(b); 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) (stating that the court must make a de novo
determination of those portions of the R&R to which specific objections are made). The
Court agrees with the Magistrate Judge’s determinations, accepts the recommended
decision within the meaning of Rule 72(b), and overrules Petitioner’s objections. See 28
U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) (stating that the district court “may accept, reject, or modify, in whole
or in part, the findings or recommendations made by the magistrate”).
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the Report and Recommendation of the
Magistrate Judge, (Doc. 25), is ACCEPTED. Having considered the issuance of a
Certificate of Appealability from the order denying Petitioner’s Petition for a Writ of
Habeas Corpus, a Certificate of Appealability and leave to proceed in forma pauperis on
appeal are DENIED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court shall enter judgment
denying and dismissing Petitioner’s Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus filed pursuant to
28 U.S.C. § 2254, (Doc. 1), with prejudice, and shall terminate this action.
Dated this 5th day of November, 2015.
Douglas L. Rayes
United States District Judge
