Hoskison v. Dir TDCJ
MEMORANDUM OPINION ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS for 19 Report and Recommendations.. Signed by District Judge Rodney Gilstrap on 3/6/2018. (ch, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS
MISTY D. HOSKISON, #1856544
CIVIL ACTION NO. 2:15cv53
MEMORANDUM OPINION ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
OF THE UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
AND ENTERING FINAL JUDGMENT
Petitioner Misty Hoskison (Hoskison), an inmate confined with the Texas Department of
Criminal Justice, proceeding pro se, filed this petition for a writ of habeas corpus under 28 U.S.C.
§ 2254 alleging the illegality of her convictions. The cause of action was referred for findings of
fact, conclusions of law, and recommendations for the disposition of the petition.
After a review of the pleadings, the Magistrate Judge issued a Report, (Dkt. #19),
recommending that Hoskison’s petition be dismissed with prejudice as time-barred.
Magistrate Judge also recommended that a certificate of appealability be denied. A copy of this
Report was mailed to Hoskison at her address, return receipt requested. The docket demonstrates
that Hoskison received a copy of the Report on January 30, 2018. (Dkt. #20). However, to date,
no objections to the Report have been received.
Accordingly, Hoskison is barred from de novo review by the District Judge of those
findings, conclusions, and recommendations and, except upon grounds of plain error, from
appellate review of the unobjected-to proposed factual findings and legal conclusions accepted and
adopted by the district court. Douglass v. United Services Automobile Association, 79 F.3d 1415,
1430 (5th Cir. 1996) (en banc).
The Court has reviewed the pleadings in this cause and the Report of the Magistrate Judge.
Upon such review, the Court has determined that the Report of the Magistrate Judge is correct. See
United States v. Wilson, 864 F.2d 1219, 1221 (5th Cir.), cert. denied, 492 U.S. 918, 109 S.Ct. 3243
(1989) (where no objections to a Magistrate Judge’s Report are filed, the standard of review is
“clearly erroneous, abuse of discretion and contrary to law.”). Accordingly it is
ORDERED that the Report of the Magistrate Judge, (Dkt. #19), is ADOPTED as the
opinion of the Court. Moreover, it is
ORDERED that the above-styled civil action is DISMISSED with prejudice. Finally, it
ORDERED that any and all motions which may be pending in this civil action are hereby
SIGNED this 19th day of December, 2011.
So ORDERED and SIGNED this 6th day of March, 2018.
