FINDNGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
Petitioner appears pro se in this habeas corpus matter. On June 30, 2017 Respondent filed
and served a Motion to Dismiss the petition. ECF No. 10. On July 14, 2017 petitioner requested
a 30 day extension of time to respond to the Motion which resulted in the issuance of an order
granting the request and specifying that petitioner had until August 29, 2017 to file opposition.
ECF No. 13.
When no further request for time and no opposition was received from petitioner, on
September 25, 2017 the court issued an Order to Show Cause why the petitioner’s silence should
not be construed as a waiver of opposition to the pending Motion to Dismiss and providing
petitioner with a 15 day time frame in which to respond to the Order. ECF No. 14. Petitioner’s
response was, therefore, due on or before October 11, 2017. In this Order the magistrate warned
petition that failure to time respond would lead to a recommendation that his petition be
dismissed with prejudice. Again, petitioner has remained silent. The court construes the
petitioner’s silence as an indication that he has no opposition to the granting of the Motion to
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY RECOMMENDED that:
The petition should be dismissed with prejudice;
No Certificate of Appealability should issue; and
The Clerk of the Court shall close this file.
These findings and recommendations are submitted to the United States District Judge
assigned to the case, pursuant to the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(l). Within twenty days
after being served with these findings and recommendations, any party may file written
objections with the court and serve a copy on all parties. Such a document should be captioned
“Objections to Magistrate Judge’s Findings and Recommendations.” Failure to file objections
within the specified time may waive the right to appeal the District Court's order. Martinez v.
