The United States Magistrate Judge has completed his preliminary review of the petition and has submitted to the undersigned a report and recommendation that the petition be dismissed without prejudice. Petitioner has filed exceptions to the report and recommendation of the magistrate judge, in which he again challenges the validity of his commitment under 18 U.S.C. 4246. The record establishes that this commitment was ordered by the Eastern District of Arkansas in January of 2004. That Court is in the best position to evaluate the merits of petitioner's argument that this order was invalid. See Archuleta v. Hedrick, 365 F.3d 644, 649 (8th Cir. 2004). Petitioner's exceptions must therefore be overruled. It is ORDERED that petitioner be, and he is hereby, denied leave to proceed in forma pauperis; it is further ORDERED, ADJUDGED and DECREED that the petition filed herein be dismissed without prejudice. 1 /s/ Richard E.
