Vaughn, to show why his petition under 28 U.S.C. 2254 for writ of habeas corpus, R. 1, should not be dismissed as untimely. R. 4. On March 24, 2009, Vaughn filed a response to the show cause order. R. 8. Since Vaughn's response did not challenge the Court's previous timeliness calculation and it only supported equitable tolling, on December 8, 2009, Judge Wier recommended that the Court dismiss his petition as untimely. R. 9. Vaughn had fourteen days from December 8, 2009, to file any objections to Judge Wier's R eport and Recommendation, R. 9. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b).

A Judgment shall be entered concurrently with this Order. This the 28th day of December, 2009. 2
