UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
JUAN JOSE ZUNIGA-HERNANDEZ,
EASTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS
CIVIL ACTION NO. 1:11-CV-295
MEMORANDUM ORDER OVERRULING PETITIONER’S OBJECTIONS AND
ADOPTING THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
Petitioner Juan Jose Zuniga-Hernandez, a prisoner confined at the Federal Correctional
Complex in Beaumont, Texas, proceeding pro se, filed this petition for writ of habeas corpus
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241.
The court ordered that this matter be referred to the Honorable Keith F. Giblin, United
States Magistrate Judge, at Beaumont, Texas, for consideration pursuant to applicable laws and
orders of this court. The magistrate judge has submitted a Report and Recommendation of United
States Magistrate Judge. The magistrate judge recommends dismissing the petition.
The court has received and considered the Report and Recommendation of United States
Magistrate Judge, along with the record, pleadings, and all available evidence. Petitioner filed
objections to the magistrate judge’s Report and Recommendation.
The court has conducted a de novo review of the objections in relation to the pleadings and
the applicable law. See FED. R. CIV. P. 72(b). After careful consideration, the court concludes
the objections are without merit. Petitioner may not pursue habeas relief under § 2241 because
his claims do not meet the requirements set forth in Reyes-Requena v. United States, 243 F.3d
893, 904 (5th Cir. 2001). To the extent that petitioner argues he is entitled to relief from
judgment pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 60(b), that motion should be directed to the
court that ruled on his motion to vacate, set aside or correct sentence.
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
SIGNED at Beaumont, Texas, this 7th day of September, 2004.
SIGNED at Beaumont, Texas, this 14th day of December, 2011.
