IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF WEST VIRGINIA
CIVIL ACTION NO. 1:11CV34
WARDEN KUMA DEBOO, et al.,
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION (DKT. 15)
AND DISMISSING MANDAMUS PETITION WITHOUT PREJUDICE
On May 17, 2011, United States Magistrate Judge James E.
Seibert issued a Report and Recommendation (“R&R”), concluding that
this petition for mandamus under 28 U.S.C. § 1361 should be denied
without prejudice because the pro se petitioner, Mitchell Gatewood
(“Gatewood”), had failed to exhaust his administrative remedies
within the Bureau of Prisons prior to filing his petition. The R&R
also noted that Gatewood cannot satisfy the requirements of § 1361
because the alternative remedy of a civil rights action against the
defendants is available to him once he properly exhausts his
Gatewood did not file objections to the R&R, and the time to
do so has expired. The Court therefore ADOPTS the R&R in its
entirety, and DISMISSES the petition WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
It is so ORDERED.
