UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
November 29, 2011
WILLIS R. BROWN,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Christina A. Snyder United States District Judge
ORDER ACCEPTING FINDINGS AND
RECOMMENDATIONS OF UNITED STATED
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636, the Court has reviewed the Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus ("Petition"), all of the records herein, the Report and Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge ("Report"), and petitioner's Objections to the Report. The Court has conducted a de novo review of those portions of the Report to which objections have been stated in writing.
Petitioner has appended several documents to his Objections. A district court has discretion, but is not required, to consider evidence presented for the first time in objections to a report and recommendation. See Brown v. Roe, 279 F.3d 742, 744-45 (9th Cir. 2002); United States v. Howell, 231 F.3d 615, 621-22 (9th Cir. 2000). The Court exercises its discretion to consider the documents appended to petitioner's Objections. Having done so, the Court concludes that the documents do not affect the correctness of the Report's conclusions. The Court accepts the findings and recommendations set forth in the Report.
IT IS ORDERED that: (1) the Petition is denied; and (2) Judgment shall be entered dismissing this action with prejudice.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk serve copies of this Order and the Judgment herein on the parties.
LET JUDGMENT BE ENTERED ACCORDINGLY.
