AND NOW, this 13th day of November, 2017, upon careful consideration of Petitioner
Keith Galloway’s pro se Petition Under 28 U.S.C. § 2254 for Writ of Habeas Corpus, the
response thereto, and Petitioner’s reply, and after independent review of the Report and
Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge Marilyn Heffley, to which no objections
have been filed to date,1 it is ORDERED:
The Report and Recommendation (Document 16) is APPROVED and
Galloway’s Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus (Document 3) is DISMISSED as
Galloway having failed to show that jurists of reason would find it debatable
whether his habeas petition is untimely, a certificate of appealability shall not issue; and
The Clerk of Court is directed to mark this case CLOSED.
BY THE COURT:
/s/ Juan R. Sánchez
