GABRIEL ROSS Petitioner,
SUPERINTENDENT RON KING, Respondent.
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS, GRANTING RESPONDENT'S MOTION TO DISMISS, AND DISMISSING PETITION FOR WRIT OF HABEAS CORPUS
HALIL SULEYMAN OZERDEN, District Judge.
BEFORE THE COURT is the Report and Recommendations of United States Magistrate Judge Robert H. Walker  entered on October 2, 2013. Also before the Court is the Respondent Ron King's ("Respondent") Motion to Dismiss  the Petition for habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2244(d). Respondent contends that Petitioner Gabriel Ross's ("Ross") Petition was not timely filed and should be dismissed. The Court has thoroughly reviewed the findings in the Report and Recommendations, the record, and the positions advanced in the Motion, and concludes that Ross's Petition was untimely filed, and Respondent's Motion should be granted.
To date, no objection to the Report and Recommendations has been filed by Ross. Where no party has objected to a magistrate judge's report and recommendation, a Court need not conduct a de novo review of it. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) ("[A] judge of the court shall make a de novo determination of those portions of the report or specified proposed findings and recommendations to which objection is made."). In such cases, the court need only review the proposed findings of fact and recommendation and determine whether it is either clearly erroneous or contrary to law. United States v. Wilson, 864 F.2d 1219, 1221 (5th Cir. 1989).
Having conducted the required review, the Court finds that the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendations thoroughly considered all issues and is neither clearly erroneous nor contrary to law. The Court, being fully advised in the premises, finds that the Magistrate Judge properly recommended that Respondent's Motion to Dismiss should be granted and that the Petitioner's Petition be dismissed as time barred. The Report and Recommendations should be adopted as the opinion of this Court.
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that the Report and Recommendations  of Magistrate Judge Robert H. Walker entered on October 2, 2013, is adopted as the finding of this Court.
IT IS, FURTHER, ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that Respondent's Motion to Dismiss  filed July 25, 2013, is GRANTED, and Petitioner's Petition for writ of habeas corpus is DISMISSED. A separate judgment will be entered in accordance with this Order as required by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 58.
SO ORDERED AND ADJUDGED.
