ROBERT LEWIS MORGAN,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
ORDER ADOPTING MAGISTRATE’S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
This Cause is before the Court upon Movant’s pro se Third Amended Motion to Vacate
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255 (the “Motion”) (D.E. 11). The Court has reviewed the Motion and
pertinent parts of the record and is otherwise fully advised in the premises.
This matter was referred to Magistrate Judge Lisette M. Reid who, on October 23, 20209,
issued a Report (the “Report”) recommending that the Motion be denied because Movant failed to
meet his burden to show that his counsel was ineffective. D.E. 51. Movant did not file objections
to the Report. See LoConte v. Dugger, 847 F.2d 745, 750 (11th Cir. 1988), cert. denied, 488 U.S.
958 (1988) (holding that failure to file timely objections bars the parties from attacking factual
findings on appeal).
Upon de novo review, the Court agrees with Magistrate Judge Reid’s recommendations
and concurs in all her findings. Accordingly, it is hereby
ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that the Report (D.E. 51) is RATIFIED, ADOPTED, and
AFFIRMED. It is further
ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that the Motion (D.E. 11) is DENIED. It is further
