UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 4, 2009
LEONARD MOORE, JR. PETITIONER,
MATTHEW CATE, SECRETARY OF THE CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS AND REHABILITATION, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Hon. Jeffrey T. Miller United States District Judge
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
On September 8, 2008 Magistrate Judge Bencivengo entered a Report and Recommendation recommending the denial of the petition for writ of habeas corpus ("R & R"). The R & R, expressly incorporated herein, thoroughly and thoughtfully analyzed Petitioner's claims and recommended denying the petition for writ of habeas corpus. Petitioner has filed objections to the R & R ("Objections"). Respondent did not file a reply to the Objections.
In his Objections, Petitioner raises no persuasive argument. The overwhelming thrust of Petitioner's Objections is that the analysis of his claims by the California Court of Appeal was not objectively reasonable and did not constitute harmless error under Brecht v. Abrahamson, 507 U.S. 619 (1993). The R & R thoroughly discussed and analyzed the five alleged claims. Instead of responding to Petitioner's arguments a second time, the court adopts the R & R in its entirety. The petition for habeas corpus is denied with prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
