UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF MINNESOTA
Civil No. 10-2101 (SRN/SER)
PIERRE LaMONT LEAKE,
Pierre LaMont Leake, pro se, Minnesota Correctional Facility - Oak Park Heights, 5329
Osgood Avenue North, Stillwater, Minnesota, 55082.
Linda Kay Jenny, Esq., Assistant Hennepin County Attorney, C-2000 Government
Center, 300 South Sixth Street, Minneapolis, Minnesota, 55487, for Respondent.
This matter is before the Court on the Report and Recommendation of United States
Magistrate Judge Steven E. Rau. On December 22, 2011, Petitioner filed a document entitled
“Notice of Appeal from a Judgement (sic) and/or Order of the District Court Pursuant to 28
U.S.C. Sec. 2253 and Fed. R. App. P. 4(a)” [Docket No. 27]. In this document, the Petitioner
states that he is appealing to the Eighth Circuit from the final judgment. However, no such final
judgment has been entered.
Therefore, given that Petitioner’s filing clearly states that its
intended purpose is to appeal to the Eighth Circuit, along with the fact that no objections to the
Report and Recommendation are identified within the document, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED
1. Petitioner=s application for habeas corpus relief under 28 U.S.C. ' 2254, [Docket No.
1], is DENIED;
2. This action is DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE; and
3. Petitioner will NOT receive a Certificate of Appealability.
LET JUDGMENT BE ENTERED ACCORDINGLY.
Dated: January 4, 2012
