Judge Susan J. Dlott
The Court has reviewed the Report and Recommendation of United States Magistrate
Judge Karen L. Litkovitz filed on August 8, 2017 (Doc. 10), to whom this case was referred
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §636(b), and noting that no objections have been filed thereto and that the
time for filing such objections under Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b) expired August 22, 2017, hereby
ADOPTS said Report and Recommendation.
Accordingly, respondent’s motion to dismiss (Doc. 5) is GRANTED and petitioner’s
petition for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §2254 (Doc. 1) is DISMISSED with
prejudice to refiling after petitioner exhausts his state court remedies.

With respect to any application by petitioner to proceed on appeal in forma pauperis, the
Court will certify pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §1915 (a)(3) that an appeal of any Order adopting the
Report and Recommendation will not be taken in “good faith,” therefore DENYING petitioner
leave to appeal in forma pauperis. See Fed. R. App. P. 24(a); Kincade v. Sparkman, 117 F.3d
949, 952 (6th Cir. 1997).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
