United States Magistrate Judge John T. Johnston entered his findings and
recommendations in this case on June 1, 201 7, recommending denial of Petitioner
D'Wayne Bailey's ("Bailey") petition for writ of habeas corpus under 28 U.S.C. §
2254. Bailey failed to timely object to the findings and recommendations, and so
waived the right to de novo review of the record. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(l). The
Court will therefore review the record for clear error. McDonnell Douglas Corp.
v. Commodore Bus. Mach., Inc., 656 F.2d 1309, 1313 (9th Cir. 1981).
Judge Johnston found, and this Court agrees, that Bailey's petition fails to
state a cognizable claim for habeas relief.
Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that Judge Johnston's findings and
recommendations (Doc. 10) are ADOPTED IN FULL. This action is DISMISSED
WITH PREJUDICE. The Clerk of Court shall enter by separate document a
judgment in favor of Respondent and against Petitioner Bailey. A certificate of
appealability is DENIED.
