Ybarra v. Arkansas Department of Corrections
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS for 5 Report and Recommendations, and dismissing case with prejudice. Signed by Honorable Susan O. Hickey on April 2, 2012. (cap)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
CASE NO.: 4:12-CV-4017
RAY HOBBS, Director,
Arkansas Department of
Pending is the Report and Recommendation filed March 15, 2012 by the Honorable
Barry A. Bryant, United States Magistrate Judge for the Western District of Arkansas. (ECF No.
5). Judge Bryant has examined the Petitioner’s Petition for Writ of Error Coram Nobis (ECF No.
11), and recommends dismissing the Petition with prejudice. The Petitioner timely objects. (ECF
No. 6). After reviewing the record de novo, the Court adopts Judge Bryant’s Report and
Recommendation as its own.
Judge Bryant recommends dismissing the Petitioner’s Petition for two reasons: 1) a
petition for writ of error coram nobis is not proper for an in-custody petitioner; and 2) the
Petitioner has a separate but nearly identical petition for writ of habeas corpus pending.2
In her objection, the Petitioner agrees that her separate habeas petition involves the same
claims as the ones in this case, but asks the Court to “find this case with relevance, and this
matter be looked into appropriately.” (ECF No. 6, at 2). Looking into the matter appropriately,
the Court finds this case relevant but duplicative, and therefore unnecessary.
At Judge Bryant’s instruction, the clerk filed the petition as one for a writ of habeas corpus, because it seeks
release from custody.
That petition is pending as Case No. 4:11-cv-4097.
The Court therefore adopts Judge Bryant’s Report and Recommendation as its own. For
the reasons stated in Judge Bryant’s report, and those discussed above, the Petitioner’s Petition is
DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE.
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 2nd day of April, 2012.
