Hon. Brenda K. Sannes, United States District Court Judge
On August 26, 2013, petitioner Brenda Snyder filed a petition under 28 U.S.C. § 2254 for
a writ of habeas corpus challenging a 2001 judgment of conviction in Franklin County Court for
second degree murder, first degree assault (four counts) and first degree reckless endangerment
(eight counts). (Dkt. No. 1). Respondent filed an answer to the petition, with a supporting
memorandum of law, and the state court record; and petitioner filed a traverse. (Dkt. Nos. 13-17,
19). The petition was referred to United States Magistrate Judge Randolph F. Treece who, on
July 15, 2015, issued a Report-Recommendation and Order, recommending that the petition be
denied in its entirety. (Dkt. No. 21). Magistrate Judge Treece advised the parties that they had
fourteen days to file written objections to the report and that the failure to object within fourteen
days would preclude appellate review. (Dkt. No. 21, p. 17-18). A copy of the ReportRecommendation and Order was served on petitioner by regular mail on July 15, 2015, and no
objections to the Report-Recommendation have been filed. (Dkt. No. 21).
Since no objections to the Report-Recommendation have been filed and the time for
filing objections has expired, the Court has reviewed the Report-Recommendation for clear error.
See Petersen v. Astrue, 2 F. Supp. 3d 223, 228-29 (N.D.N.Y. 2012); Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)
advisory committee’s note to the 1983 addition. Under this standard, “the court need only satisfy
itself that there is no clear error on the face of the record in order to accept the recommendation.”
Id. Having reviewed the Report-Recommendation and having found no clear error, it is hereby:
ORDERED that the Report-Recommendation (Dkt. No. 21) is ADOPTED in its entirety
for the reasons stated therein; and it is further
ORDERED that the petition (Dkt. No. 1) is DENIED and DISMISSED in its entirety;
and it is further
ORDERED that, because petitioner has failed to make a substantial showing of the
denial of a constitutional right, no certificate of appealability shall issue under 28 U.S.C. §
2253(c)(2); and it is further
ORDERED that the Clerk shall close this case; and it is further
ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court shall serve a copy of this Order on petitioner in
accordance with the local rules.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
