IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
Case No. 5:15-cv-00266 KGB/PSH
WENDY KELLEY, Director of the
Arkansas Department of Corrections
Before the Court are the Findings and Recommendation (“Recommendations”) from
United States Magistrate Judge Patricia S. Harris (Dkt. No. 11). Plaintiff Pamela Hooks filed
objections to Judge Harris’ Recommendations (Dkt. No. 12). Ms. Hooks has also filed a motion
for status update (Dkt. No. 14). After review of Judge Harris’ Recommendations and the timely
objections, as well as a de novo review of the record, this Court adopts Judge Harris’
Recommendations in their entirety as this Court’s findings in all respects (Dkt. No. 11).
It is therefore ordered that:
Ms. Hook’s petition for writ of habeas corpus is dismissed with prejudice, and the
request for relief is denied (Dkt. No. 2).
Ms. Hook’s motion for status update is denied as moot (Dkt. No. 14)
The Court declines to issue a certificate of appealability. 28 U.S.C. §2253; see
also Slack v. McDaniel, 529 U.S. 473, 484–85 (2000) (articulating what a habeas applicant must
show to be granted a certificate of appealability).
It is so ordered, this the 10th day of January, 2018.
