UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF MINNESOTA
Joshua Anthony Jones,
Case No. 16-cv-3696 (JNE/HB)
Petitioner filed a petition under 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (2012). Respondent moved to
dismiss the petition, asserting that Petitioner’s claims are barred by the statute of
limitations. In a Report and Recommendation dated July 11, 2017, the Honorable Hildy
Bowbeer, United States Magistrate Judge, recommended that Respondent’s motion to
dismiss be granted, that Petitioner’s § 2254 petition be dismissed, and that a certificate of
appealability be denied. Petitioner filed objections. Respondent responded to them.
Based on a de novo review of the record, see D. Minn. LR 72.2(b), the Court overrules
Petitioner’s objections and accepts the recommended disposition [Docket No. 19].
Therefore, IT IS ORDERED THAT:
Respondent’s motion to dismiss [Docket No. 11] is GRANTED.
Petitioner’s § 2254 petition [Docket No. 1] is DISMISSED.
A certificate of appealability is DENIED.
LET JUDGMENT BE ENTERED ACCORDINGLY.
Dated: August 25, 2017
