UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF MINNESOTA
Robert Patrick Butters,
Civil No. 16-3462 (DWF/DTS)
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT
The above matter comes before the Court upon the Report and Recommendation
of United States Magistrate Judge David T. Schultz dated October 17, 2017. (Doc.
No. 10.) No objections have been filed to that Report and Recommendation in the time
period permitted. The factual background for the above-entitled matter is clearly and
precisely set forth in the Report and Recommendation and is incorporated by reference.
In the Report and Recommendation, the Magistrate Judge recommended that Petitioner’s
Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus under 28 U.S.C. § 2254 be denied and that this matter
be dismissed with prejudice.
In addition, a § 2254 petitioner cannot appeal an adverse ruling on his petition
unless he is granted a Certificate of Appealability (“COA”). 28 U.S.C.§ 2253(c)(1). A
COA may issue only if the petitioner has made “a substantial showing of the denial of a
constitutional right.” 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2). Here, the Court concludes that Petitioner
has not made such a showing.
Therefore, based upon the Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge
and upon all of the files, records, and proceedings herein, the Court now makes and enters
Magistrate Judge David T. Schultz’s October 17, 2017 Report and
Recommendation (Doc. No. ) is ADOPTED.
Robert Butters’s Petition for a Writ of Habeas Corpus (Doc. No. ) is
This action is DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE.
No COA is granted in this matter.
LET JUDGMENT BE ENTERED ACCORDINGLY.
Dated: November 17, 2017
