AND NOW, this 3rd day of June, 2021, upon careful and independent consideration of the
Amended Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (Docket No. 15),
and after review of United States Magistrate Judge Lynne A. Sitarski’s Report and
Recommendation (Docket No. 42), and consideration of Petitioner’s Objections to the Magistrate
Judge’s Report and Recommendation (Docket No. 51), and for the reasons stated in the
accompanying Memorandum, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED as follows:
Petitioner’s Objections are OVERRULED.
The Report and Recommendation of Judge Sitarski is APPROVED and
The Amended Petition for a Writ of Habeas Corpus is DENIED.
As Petitioner has failed to make a substantial showing of the denial of a
constitutional right or demonstrated that a reasonable jurist would debate the
correctness of this ruling, the Court declines to issue a certificate of appealability
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2).
The Clerk shall CLOSE this case statistically.
