IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
FORT SMITH DIVISION
JERRY LEE RUSSELL
Case No. 2:13-CV-02096
RAY HOBBS, Director, Arkansas
Department of Corrections
The Court has received proposed findings and recommendations (Doc. 18) from Chief United
States Magistrate Judge James R. Marschewski. The Court has conducted a careful review of the
findings and recommendations and of the timely objections filed by Petitioner Jerry Lee Russell.
After reviewing the record de novo as to Mr. Russell’s objections, the Court finds the Magistrate’s
reasoning to be sound and further finds that Petitioner’s objections offer neither law nor fact
requiring departure from the Magistrates’ findings.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the findings and recommendations of the Magistrate
are approved and adopted as this Court’s findings in their entirety.
Accordingly, IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Mr. Russell’s motion (Doc. 17) for a
certificate of appealability is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 18th day of March, 2014.
