comply with the above-mentioned order of the court. (Doc. 4). The magistrate judge further
recommended that, to the extent that one is applicable, a certificate of appealability be denied. A
copy of the report was mailed to Petitioner's address of record, and Petitioner was given until
October 31, 2011, to file objections. As of the date of this writing, no objections have been filed,
nor has Petitioner submitted the applicable filing fee or a motion for leave to proceed IFP, nor
has he sought an extension of time in which to do so.
After de novo review of the pleadings and documents in the case, together with the report
and recommendation (Doc. 4),
AND NOW, this
