United States District Court, W.D. Arkansas, El Dorado Division
August 11, 2014
MICHAEL LARENZO DOUGLAS, Petitioner,
RAY HOBBS, Director, Arkansas Department of Corrections, Respondent.
SUSAN O. HICKEY, District Judge.
Before the Court is the Report and Recommendation filed May 2, 2014, by the Honorable Barry A. Bryant, United States Magistrate Judge for the Western District of Arkansas. (ECF No. 12). Judge Bryant recommends that Petitioner's Petition for Writ of a Habeas Corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (ECF No. 1) be dismissed with prejudice as time barred. Petitioner has filed objections to the Report and Recommendation. (ECF No. 13).
After reviewing the record de novo, the Court adopts Judge Bryant's Report and Recommendation as its own. Petitioner's objections to the Report and Recommendation make the same arguments found in Petitioner's reply in support of his Petition. (ECF No. 10). These arguments have been fully and adequately addressed in Judge Bryant's Report and Recommendation. Accordingly, the Court overrules Petitioner's objections and adopts Judge Bryant's Report and Recommendation. For the reasons stated herein and above, as well as those contained in the Report and Recommendation, Petitioner's Petition for Writ of a Habeas Corpus (ECF No. 1) is hereby DENIED WITH PREJUDICE.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
