After a careful, de novo review of the file, the Court concurs with the Magistrate
Judge's Report and Recommendation, to which no objections have been filed. Accordingly,
the Court ADOPTS the Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge as its opinion,
GRANTS Respondents' motion to dismiss (doc. no. 14), and DISMISSES Respondents
Shepard and Head as improper parties.
Because Petitioner is on probation, the proper Respondents are Probation Officer
William Edwards and Commissioner Michael W. Nail. (See doc. no. 23.) Accordingly,
pursuant to Rule 2(b) of the Rules Governing Section 2254 Cases, the Court DIRECTS the
Disclaimer: Justia Dockets & Filings provides public litigation records from the federal appellate and district courts. These filings and docket sheets should not be considered findings of fact or liability, nor do they necessarily reflect the view of Justia.
