§ CIVIL ACTION NO. 7:15-CV-255
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
Pending before the Court is Petitioner’s motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis
(“IFP) on appeal from the Court’s dismissal of his claims pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 2254 (D.E. No.
34). On August 24, 2017, the Magistrate Court issued the Report and Recommendation,
recommending that Petitioner’s motion for leave to proceed IFP on appeal be denied because
Petitioner’s notice of appeal is untimely under Rule 4(a) of the Federal Rules of Appellate
Procedure—no matter how the notice of appeal is construed under Rule 4(a), and Petitioner fails
to meet the requirements for any other avenue provided under Rule 4(a). Also pending before
the Court are Petitioner’s objections to the Report and Recommendation.
Pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 72(b), the Court has conducted a de novo
review of the Report and Recommendation. Finding no clearly erroneous error, the Court adopts
the Report and Recommendation in its entirety. Accordingly, Defendant’s motion for leave to
proceed IFP on appeal (D.E. No. 34) is DENIED.
SO ORDERED this 18th day of October, 2017, at McAllen, Texas.
