EASTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS
CIVIL ACTION NO. 1:10-CV-770
MEMORANDUM ORDER OVERRULING OBJECTIONS AND ADOPTING
THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
Petitioner, Brandon Overshown, an inmate confined at the Federal Correctional Institution
in Beaumont, Texas, proceeding pro se, filed this petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to
28 U.S.C. § 2241.
The court referred this matter to the Honorable Zack Hawthorn, United States Magistrate
Judge, at Beaumont, Texas, for consideration pursuant to applicable laws and orders of this court.
The magistrate judge recommends respondent’s motion for summary judgment be granted.1
The court has received and considered the Report and Recommendation of United States
Magistrate Judge filed pursuant to such referral, along with the record, and pleadings. Petitioner
filed objections to the magistrate judge’s Report and Recommendation. This requires a de novo
review of the objections in relation to the pleadings and applicable law. FED . R. CIV . P. 72(b).
After careful consideration, the court finds petitioner’s objections lacking in merit. As the
magistrate judge correctly concluded, there is no genuine dispute of material fact as to whether
petitioner exhausted his administrative remedies.
This matter was originally referred to the Honorable Earl S. Hines but was reassigned to the Honorable Zack
Hawthorn on August 4, 2011.
Accordingly, petitioner’s objections are OVERRULED.
The findings of fact and
conclusions of law of the magistrate judge are correct, and the report of the magistrate judge is
ADOPTED. A final judgment will be entered in this case in accordance with the magistrate
