IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF ARIZONA
Carlton Errol Godwin,
Charles L Ryan, et al.,
Pending before the Court is Petitioner’s Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus, as
The Magistrate Judge issued a Report and Recommendation
(“R&R”) (Doc. 41) recommending that the Petition be denied because it is barred by the
statute of limitations.
Respondents did not file objections to the R&R. This Court granted Petitioner an
extension of time to file objections (Doc. 44), but Petitioner did not file objections.
Because neither party has filed objections to the R&R, the Court hereby accepts the
R&R. See Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985) (finding that district courts are not
required to conduct “any review at all . . . of any issue that is not the subject of an
objection” (emphasis added)); United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th
Cir. 2003) (en banc) (“statute makes it clear that the district judge must review the
magistrate judge’s findings and recommendations de novo if objection is made, but not
otherwise” (emphasis in original)); see also Schmidt v. Johnstone, 263 F.Supp.2d 1219,
1226 (D. Ariz. 2003).
Based on the foregoing,
IT IS ORDERED that the Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation (Doc.
41) is ACCEPTED; accordingly,
Petitioner’s Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus, as amended, is
denied and dismissed with prejudice,
in the event Petitioner files an appeal, issuance of a certificate of
appealability is denied because denial of the petition is based on a plain procedural bar
and jurists of reason would not find this Court’s procedural ruling debatable. See Slack v.
McDaniel, 529 U.S. 473, 484 (2000), and
the Clerk of the Court shall enter judgment of dismissal with
