§ CIVIL ACTION NO. 7:15-CV-555
ORDER ADOPTING IN PART MAGISTRATE COURT’S
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
Pending before the Court is Petitioner’s application to vacate, set aside, or correct sentence
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. ' 2254, which motion had been referred to the Magistrate Court for a report
and recommendation. On February 15, 2017, the Magistrate Court issued the Report and
Recommendation, recommending that Respondent’s motion for Summary Judgment (Dkt. Entry
No. 10) be granted and that Petitioner’s section 2254 motion be dismissed with prejudice as timebarred. Also pending before the Court are Petitioner’s and Respondents objections to the Report
Pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 72(b), the Court has conducted a de novo
review of the Report and Recommendation. Finding no clear erroneous error, the Court adopts the
Report and Recommendation in its entirety on the issue of the time barred claims. Accordingly,
Petitioner’s section 2254 claims are DISMISSED with prejudice as time-barred.
Court concludes that jurists of reason would not find the denial of equitable tolling debatable and
therefore DENIES a Certificate of Appealability.
SO ORDERED this 21st day of March, 2017, at McAllen, Texas.
