Ray v. Kelly
ORDER ADOPTING 20 Report and Recommendations in its entirety; further petitioner's petition for writ of habeas corpus is denied and case is dismissed with prejudice. Signed by Honorable P. K. Holmes, III on December 21, 2016. (rw)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
HOT SPRINGS DIVISION
WENDY KELLY, Director,
Arkansas Department of Correction
The Court has received a report and recommendations (Doc. 20) from Chief United States
Magistrate Judge Barry A. Bryant, and timely objections (Doc. 21) from Petitioner Norman H.
May. Respondent Wendy Kelly has filed a response (Doc. 22) to the objections, and Petitioner
has filed a reply (Doc. 23) and supplement (Doc. 24) to that replay without leave of Court.
Nevertheless, the Court has considered the reply and supplement.
The Magistrate recommends that Petitioner’s petition for a writ of habeas corpus (Doc. 1)
be denied for lack of jurisdiction. The Magistrate further recommends that no certificate of
appealability issue. Upon due consideration, the Court finds that Petitioner’s objections, reply,
and supplement 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. 20) should be, and hereby is, ADOPTED IN ITS ENTIRETY.
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 shall issue.
Judgment will be entered accordingly.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the remaining motions in this case are TERMINATED
IT IS SO ORDERED this 21st day of December, 2016.
