United States District Court, C.D. California, Eastern Division
January 9, 2015
JUAN JOSE PRERA, Petitioner,
DANIEL PARAMO, Warden, Respondent.
ORDER ACCEPTING THE FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATION OF THE UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
CORMAC J. CARNEY, District Judge.
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636, the Court has reviewed the file, including the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation ("R&R") and Petitioner's Objections . Further, the Court has completed a de novo review of those portions of the R&R to which Petitioner has objected.
IT IS ORDERED that:
1. The Objections reiterate arguments raised in the Second Amended Petition that lack merit for the reasons explained in the R&R. The findings and conclusions in the R&R also expose and demonstrate that the Objections contain arguments that misconstrue the doctrine of procedural default and relevant parts of the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996. Accordingly, the Objections are overruled.
2. The Court accepts the findings and recommendation of the R&R.
3. Judgment shall be entered denying the Second Amended Petition and dismissing this action with prejudice.
4. All pending motions are denied as moot and terminated.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the clerk of the Court shall serve a copy of this Order and the Judgment on all counsel or parties of record.
