UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 23, 2010
LOUIS JESUS COMADURAN, PETITIONER,
KEN CLARK, WARDEN, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Honorable Barry Ted Moskowitz United States District Judge
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION; DENYING PETITION; AND GRANTING IN PART AND DENYING IN PART A CERTIFICATE OF APPEALABILITY
Louis Jesus Comaduran was convicted in a single trial of offenses relating to a home invasion robbery on March 1, 2005, flight from and assault of police officers on March 8, 2005, and resisting jail officers on June 26, 2005. He seeks a writ of habeas corpus, contending that the joinder of the three incidents for trial prejudicially deprived him of due process. Magistrate Judge Battaglia issued a Report and Recommendation ("R&R") that the Petition be denied. Comaduran has not filed any objections to the R&R. The Court has considered the R&R and the relevant record and concludes that the R&R correctly applies the controlling law to the facts of this case.
Therefore, the Court ADOPTS the R&R as the decision of this Court. The Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus is DENIED. The Court GRANTS a certificate of appealability limited solely to the issue of whether Petitioner's right to due process was violated by the joinder of the offense of resisting an executive officer on June 26, 2005, with the offenses alleged to have taken place on March 1 and 8, 2005.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
