Sears v. District Attorney
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION 8 of Magistrate Judge Charles Goodwin the court dismisses the petition for writ of habeas corpus without prejudice. Signed by Honorable Joe Heaton on 02/12/2018. (lam)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE
WESTERN DISTRICT OF OKLAHOMA
ELIZABETH KAY SEARS,
Petitioner, a state prisoner appearing pro se, filed a writ of habeas corpus under 28
U.S.C. § 2241. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B), the matter was referred to Magistrate
Judge Charles B. Goodwin for initial proceedings. Judge Goodwin twice ordered petitioner
to pay the $5.00 filing fee or file an application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis.
Petitioner never responded to the court’s order. Judge Goodwin has issued a Report and
Recommendation recommending that petitioner’s petition be dismissed without prejudice.
Plaintiff has failed to object to the Report, thereby waiving her right to appellate
review of the factual and legal issues it addresses. Casanova v. Ulibarri, 595 F.3d 1120,
1123 (10th Cir. 2010); see also 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C).
Accordingly, the court ADOPTS the Report and Recommendation [Doc. #8]. The
Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus [Doc. #4] is DISMISSED without prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated this 12th day of February, 2018.
