Pending before the Court is Movant=s motion to vacate, set aside, or correct sentence

prejudice, Respondent’s motion to dismiss be granted, and that a Certificate of Appealability be
denied upon the issuance of this Court=s final order. The time for filing objections has passed,
and no objections have been filed.
Pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 72(b), the Court has reviewed the Report and
Recommendation for clear error.1
Finding no clear error, the Court adopts the Report and
Recommendation in its entirety. Accordingly, Respondent’s Motion to Dismiss (Dkt. Entry No.

Certificate of Appealability is DENIED.
As noted by the Fifth Circuit, A[t]he advisory committee=s note to Rule 72(b) states that, >[w]hen
no timely objection is filed, the [district] court need only satisfy itself that there is no clear error on the face of the
record in order to accept the recommendation.=@ Douglas v. United Services Auto. Ass=n, 79 F.3d 1415, 1420 (5th
