IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF ARIZONA
Corey Lamont Holleman,
Charles L. Ryan, et al.,
Pending before the Court is a Report and Recommendation issued by United
States Magistrate Jacqueline Rateau that recommends denying Petitioner’s habeas
petition filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. (Doc. 19.) As thoroughly explained by
Magistrate Judge Rateau, the Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus (doc. 1) is a successive
petition, which does not allege either a new rule of constitutional law or newly
discovered facts that establish actual innocence. No objection to the Report and
Recommendation was filed by Petitioner.1
The Court has reviewed the record and concludes that Magistrate Judge Rateau’s
The Court notes that Petitioner filed a surreply on the same day that the
Magistrate Judge filed her Report and Recommendation. (Doc. 20.) In his surreply,
Petitioner contends that he was not provided with the May 15, 2013 order dismissing his
first petition with prejudice. Petitioner further contends that the first petition was
dismissed for failure to exhaust state remedies, and was “without prejudice.” The Court
has reviewed the surreply, as well as the 2013 Order dismissing Defendant’s previous
petition, and concludes that the Court dismissed the petition with prejudice. (See docs. 18
and 22 in case No. 4:10-CV-00433-JGZ, Holleman v. Hartsuck, et al.) Accordingly, the
arguments contained in Petitioner’s surreply do not undermine the conclusion reached by
the Magistrate Judge in the present Report and Recommendation.
recommendations are not clearly erroneous. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); Fed. R. Civ. P.
72; Johnson v. Zema Systems Corp., 170 F.3d 734, 739 (7th Cir. 1999); see also Conley
v. Crabtree, 14 F.Supp.2d 1203, 1204 (D. Or. 1998).
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED as follows:
The Report and Recommendation (Doc. 19) is accepted and adopted;
Petitioner’s §2254 Petition (Doc. 1) is denied and this case is dismissed
A Certificate of Appealability is denied and shall not issue; and
The Clerk of the Court shall enter judgment accordingly and close the file
in this matter.
