Newsome v. Hobbs
ORDER approving and adopting 10 Proposed Findings and Recommendations in their entirety as this Court's findings in all respects. Mr. Newsome's 1 Petition for Writ of Habeas is DISMISSED with prejudice and the requested relief is DENIED. Signed by Judge James M. Moody on 11/8/2012. (dmn)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
WARDELL NEWSOME, II,
RAY HOBBS, Director,
Arkansas Department of Correction
The Court has reviewed the Proposed Findings and Recommended Disposition submitted
by United States Magistrate Judge Joe J. Volpe and Plaintiff’s objections. After carefully
considering the objections and making a de novo review of the record including the state court
transcripts, the Court concludes that the Proposed Findings and Recommended Disposition should
be, and hereby are, approved and adopted in their entirety as this Court's findings in all respects.
Although Petitioner’s arguments are well-founded, the Court cannot say that the state court decision
was “contrary to, or involved an unreasonable application of, clearly established federal law, as
determined by the Supreme Court of the United States.” 28 U.S.C. § 2254(d)(1).
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that:
Mr. Newsome’s § 2254 Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus (Doc. No. 2) is
DISMISSED with prejudice, and the requested relief is DENIED.
SO ORDERED this 8th day of November, 2012.
JAMES M. MOODY
