The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
Movant, a federal prisoner proceeding pro se, has filed a motion to vacate, set aside, or correct his sentence pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255. The matter was referred to a United States Magistrate Judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) and Local Rule 302.
On July 19, 2010, the magistrate judge filed findings and recommendations herein which were served on all parties and which contained notice to all parties that any objections to the findings and recommendations were to be filed within twenty-one days. Neither party has filed objections to the findings and recommendations.
Although it appears from the file that movant's copy of the findings and recommendations were returned, movant was properly served. It is the movant's responsibility to keep the court apprised of his current address at all times. Pursuant to Local Rule 182(f), service of documents at the record address of the party is fully effective.
The court has reviewed the file and finds the findings and recommendations to be supported by the record and by the magistrate judge's analysis. Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The findings and recommendations filed on July 19, 2010, are adopted in full;
2. Movant's August 21, 2007 motion to vacate, set aside, or correct his sentence pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255 (Doc. No. 22) is denied;
3. The Clerk of the Court is directed to close the companion civil case, No. CIV S-07-1695 GEB DAD; and
4. For the reasons set forth in the July 19, 2010 findings and recommendations, movant has not made a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right. Accordingly, a certificate of appealability should not issue in this action.
