IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE
WESTERN DISTRICT OF OKLAHOMA
WILLIAM SHAWN BLANKENSHIP,
KAMERON HARVANEK, Warden,
ORDER OR DISMISSAL WITHOUT PREJUDICE
This action for habeas corpus relief brought by a prisoner, proceeding pro se, was
referred to United States Magistrate Judge Bernard M. Jones consistent with the provisions
of 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B). Judge Jones entered a Report and Recommendation on
September 15, 2015, to which Petitioner has timely objected. The Court therefore considers
the matter de novo.
The facts and relevant law are set out in full in the accurate and well-reasoned opinion
of the Magistrate Judge. No point would be served in repeating that analysis. Petitioner does
not specifically dispute either the factual recitation or the legal reasoning employed by the
Magistrate Judge, but rather disagrees, in a summary fashion, with the ultimate conclusions.
There is nothing asserted by the Petitioner which was not fully considered and correctly
rejected by the Magistrate Judge, and no argument of fact or law is set forth in the objection
which would require a different result. Although Judge Jones recommended dismissal only
if Petitioner elected not to amend, omitting unexhausted claims, Petitioner has elected not to
amend, instead requesting a stay while he returns to state court. However, Judge Jones
addresses this issue, and concludes correctly that the limited circumstances justifying a stay
are not present here. (See Report and Recommendation at 8, n.7, Dkt. No. 15.)
Accordingly, the Court adopts, in its entirety, the Report and Recommendation of the
Magistrate Judge, and for the reasons announced therein, denies this petition for habeas
corpus relief is dismissed, without prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 30th day of October, 2015.
