2015 and filed March 12, 2015;
it appearing that no objections have been filed to the Report

appearing after review of this matter that Magistrate Judge
Hart’s Report and Recommendation correctly determined the legal
and factual issues presented in the petition for habeas corpus
IT IS ORDERED that Magistrate Judge Hart’s Report and
Recommendation is approved and adopted.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that petitioner’s Petition Under
28 U.S.C. § 2254 for Writ of Habeas Corpus by a Person in State
Custody is denied without an evidentiary hearing.

met statutory requirements to have his case heard, and no
reasonable jurist could find this procedural ruling debatable, a
certificate of appealability is denied.
Petitioner received a Notice accompanying the Report and
Recommendation stating that petitioner was required to file any objections to
the Report and Recommendation within fourteen days of service of the Notice
and filing of the Report and Recommendation pursuant to Rule 72.1(IV)(b) of
the Local Rules of Civil Procedure for the United States District Court for

I granted petitioner’s Motion for a 30-Day Extension of Time to File
Objections to Magistrate’s Report and Recommendation, which motion was filed
March 23, 2015. Any objections were required to be filed on or before
April 27, 2015.
As of the date of this order, petitioner has not filed any
