UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
Case No. 5:15-cv-1578
Margaret Bradshaw1, Warden,
Before me is the Report and Recommendation of Magistrate Judge Nancy A. Vecchiarelli,
filed on July 21, 2016, recommending I grant a conditional writ of habeas corpus to allow Petitioner
the right to directly appeal his sentence. (Doc. No. 10).
Under the relevant statute, “[w]ithin fourteen days after being served with a copy, any party
may serve and file written objections to such proposed findings and recommendations as provided
by rules of court.” 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); United States v. Campbell, 261 F.3d 628 (6th Cir. 2001). In
this case, the fourteen day period has elapsed and no objections have been filed.
The failure to file written objections to the Magistrate Judge’s report and recommendation
constitutes a waiver of a determination by the district court of an issue covered in the report.
Thomas v. Arn, 728 F.2d 813 (6th Cir. 1984), aff’d, 474 U.S. 140 (1985); see also United States v. Walters,
638 F.2d 947 (6th Cir. 1981); Smith v. Detroit Fed’n of Teachers, Local 231, 829 F.2d 1370, 1373 (6th Cir.
1987) (“only those specific objections to the magistrate’s report made to the district court will be
preserved for appellate review”).
1 The Court’s docket designates Jason Bunting as the Respondent but the Magistrate Judge’s Report and
Recommendation designates Margaret Bradshaw, Warden, as the Respondent.
Following review of the Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation, the Court adopts
the Report and Recommendation (Doc. No. 10) in its entirety as the Order of the Court. The Court
grants Petitioner a conditional writ of habeas corpus directing his release from prison unless the
State of Ohio grants Petitioner Grady a new direct appeal, with the assistance of appointed counsel,
within one-hundred eighty (180) days from the time Petitioner files a motion to reopen his direct
