March 12, 2015
KIM ANTONIO GRIFFIN, Petitioner,
WILLARD R. HALL, Respondent.
LORETTA C. BIGGS, District Judge.
On August 22, 2014, the United States Magistrate Judge's Recommendation was filed and notice was served on Petitioner pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636. Petitioner filed objections (Doc. 17) and supplemental objections (Doc. 18) to the Recommendation. The Court has reviewed Petitioner's objections de novo and finds they do not change the substance of the United States Magistrate Judge's Recommendation (Doc. 15), which is affirmed and adopted.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Respondent's Motion for Summary Judgment (Doc. 5) is GRANTED, the Petition (Doc. 1) is DENIED, and this action is DISMISSED, and that, finding no substantial issue for appeal concerning the denial of a constitutional right affecting the conviction, nor a debatable procedural ruling, a certificate of appealability is DENIED.
