Weigle (Doc. 13) on the Respondent’s motion to dismiss (Doc. 10).

The Court has reviewed the Recommendation, and the Court accepts and adopts the findings, conclusions, and recommendations of the Magistrate Judge. The Recommendation is ADOPTED and made the order of this Court. Accordingly, the Respondent’s motion to dismiss is GRANTED, and the Petitioner’s § 2254 petition is DISMISSED.
