The Court has received a report and recommendations (Doc. 21) from Chief United States
Magistrate Judge Barry A. Bryant, and timely objections (Doc. 22) from Petitioner Norman H.

be denied as procedurally barred, or in the alternative because it fails on its merits. The Magistrate
further recommends that no certificate of appealability issue. Upon due consideration, the Court
finds that Petitioner’s objections offer neither law nor fact requiring departure from the
Magistrate’s findings and recommendations, that the Magistrate’s report does not otherwise
contain clear error, and that the report (Doc. 21) should be, and hereby is, ADOPTED IN ITS
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Petitioner’s petition for a writ of habeas corpus (Doc.
1) is DENIED and this case is DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE. No certificate of appealability
Judgment will be entered accordingly.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 21st day of December, 2016.
