CIVIL ACTION NO. 5:11cv137
MEMORANDUM ORDER OVERRULING PETITIONER’S OBJECTIONS AND
ADOPTING THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
Petitioner Frederick W. Bauer, an inmate at the Federal Correctional Institution in Texarkana,
Texas, proceeding pro se, brought this petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §
The Court referred this matter to the Honorable Caroline M. Craven, United States Magistrate
Judge, at Texarkana, Texas, for consideration pursuant to applicable laws and orders of this Court.
The magistrate judge recommends the petition be denied.
The Court has received and considered the Report and Recommendation of United States
Magistrate Judge filed pursuant to such order, along with the record, pleadings and all available
evidence. 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 the applicable law. See
FED. R. CIV. P. 72(b).
After careful consideration, the Court concludes petitioner’s objections are without merit to
the extent they address the above-styled habeas petition. Petitioner also asserted claims concerning
the conditions of his confinement in this petition. The magistrate judge recommended dismissal
without prejudice to his ability to pursue such claims by filing a separate civil rights action. While
the Court does not find petitioner’s objections about previous frivolous actions meritorious, it is the
opinion of the Court that these claims should be severed from this habeas petition in order to proceed
as a separate civil action.
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. Accordingly, it is
ORDERED that petitioner’s civil rights claims asserted in grounds two, seven, and thirteen
are hereby SEVERED from this action and shall proceed as a separate action. The Clerk of Court
is directed to assign petitioner’s claims to a separate civil action number. The resulting case should
be assigned according to the regular practice for allotment of newly-filed civil actions.
A final judgment will be entered in this case in accordance with the magistrate judge’s
It is SO ORDERED.
SIGNED this 17th day of September, 2014.
