UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
JAMES ALLEN WILFORD,
File No. 1:13-cv-808
HON. GORDON J. QUIST
This is an action for habeas corpus relief under 28 U.S.C. § 2254. On July 5, 2017,
Magistrate Judge Phillip J. Green issued a Report and Recommendation (“R&R”) recommending
that the Court deny the petition for lack of merit, deny Petitioner’s motion to stay the proceedings,
and deny a certificate of appealability. No objection has been filed and the deadline for doing so has
expired. The Court has reviewed the R&R and concludes that it makes a sound recommendation.
IT IS ORDERED that the R&R (ECF No. 45) is APPROVED and ADOPTED as the
opinion of the Court.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Petitioner’s application for habeas corpus relief (ECF
No. 37) and motion to stay the proceedings (ECF No. 43) are DENIED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that a certificate of appealability is DENIED.
A judgment will enter consistent with this order.
Dated: August 2, 2017
