HON. JANET T. NEFF GREGORY SKIPPER, Respondent. ____________________________/ ORDER This is a habeas corpus petition filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254.

The Report and Recommendation was duly served on the parties.1 No objections have been filed, see 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1), and the Court issues this Order. The Court will also issue a Judgment in this § 2254 proceeding. See Gillis v. United States, 729 F.3d 641, 643 (6th Cir. 2013) (requiring a separate judgment in habeas proceedings). Therefore, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge (ECF No. 6) is APPROVED and ADOPTED as the Opinion of the Court and the petition for habeas corpus relief (ECF No. 1) is DENIED for the reasons stated in the Report and Recommendation. 1 Service of the Report and Recommendation on Petitioner was returned, marked “return to sender,” “not deliverable as addressed” and “unable to forward” (ECF No. 7).
