EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
WARDELL NEWSOME II
Case No.: 5:14-cv-00215-KGB-JTR
WENDY KELLEY, Director,
Arkansas Department of Correction
The Court has reviewed the Proposed Findings and Recommended Disposition submitted
by United States Magistrate Judge J. Thomas Ray (Dkt. No. 13). Petitioner Wardell Newsome II
has filed no objections, and the time for filing objections has passed. After careful consideration,
the Court approves and adopts the Proposed Findings and Recommended Disposition in their
entirety as this Court’s findings in all respects.
The Court therefore dismisses without prejudice the petition for writ of habeas corpus
under 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (Dkt. No. 1). Mr. Newsome may seek authorization from the Eighth
Circuit Court of Appeals, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2244(b)(3)(A), to file a successive habeas
petition. The Court denies a certificate of appealability pursuant to Rule 11(a) of the Rules
Governing Section 2254 Cases in the United States District Courts.
SO ORDERED this 24th day of November, 2015.
