UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
PANAMA CITY DIVISION
KARRIECE QUONTREL DAVIS,
Case No. 5:16-cv-00332-WTH-CJK
STATE OF FLORIDA,
This matter is before the Court on ECF No. 4, the Report and Recommendation
of the Magistrate Judge, which recommends that this case be dismissed without
prejudice for lack of jurisdiction. The Petitioner file a petition under 28 U.S.C. § 2254, in
which she moves the Court to “compel the State of Florida to return said property of
monies totaling 5,924.00 that was illegally seized from Defendant.” ECF No. 2. The
Magistrate Judge recommends that 28 U.S.C. § 2254 confers jurisdiction only to attack
the legality of Petitioner’s custody, not to seek the return of seized property. Petitioner
has filed no objection, and the time to do so has passed. Upon consideration, the
Court agrees with the Magistrate Judge that the case should be dismissed.
Accordingly, the Report and Recommendation, ECF No. 4, is accepted, and the Clerk
is directed to enter the following judgment: “This matter is dismissed without prejudice

for lack of jurisdiction. A certificate of appealability is denied.” The Clerk is directed to
close the file.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DONE and ORDERED at Gainesville, Florida this 27th day of March, 2017.
