Santonio Turner is dismissed. All requested relief is denied, and judgment will be entered for
Hobbs. A certificate of appealability is denied. See Rule 11(a) of the Rules Governing Section 2254
Cases in the United States District Courts.

UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
The State contends that Judge Young was unduly generous to Turner in his assessment of
when the statute of limitations ran. Because those objections do not alter the outcome, the Court
need not decide them.
