ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
Petitioner filed a § 2254 habeas petition on April 9, 2007, and a supplemental petition on May 15, 2007. Petitioner challenges the sufficiency of the evidence supporting the jury's finding that he personally used a firearm during one of the eight second-degree robberies for which he was convicted. Respondent filed a response on June 19, 2007, and Petitioner filed a traverse on July 20, 2007.
On November 14, 2007, Magistrate Judge Ruben B. Brooks issued a Report and Recommendation ("R&R") recommending that the court deny Petitioner's § 2254 petition. Petitioner filed no objections.
Having carefully considered the thorough and thoughtful R&R, the record before the court, the absence of any objections to the R&R, and the applicable authorities, the court wholly adopts the R&R.*fn1
In sum, the R&R is hereby adopted in full and the petition for writ of habeas corpus is DENIED and the action is DISMISSED with prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
