United States District Court, E.D. New York
JOSEPH SANFORD, Petitioner,
JOHN BURGE, Superintendent, Auburn Correctional Facility, Respondent.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: NINA GERSHON, District Judge
Petitioner's objections, dated June 8, 2004, to the February
27, 2004 Report and Recommendation of the Honorable Marilyn D.
Go, magistrate judge, have been reviewed under the de novo
standard of review. See Fed.R.Civ.P. 72 (b). The objections are
without merit. Judge Go's thorough and thoughtful analysis of the
issues before the court is hereby adopted by the court in its
entirety. For the reasons stated by Judge Go, the petition for a
writ of habeas corpus is denied.
Since petitioner has failed to make a substantial showing of
the denial of a constitutional right, a certificate of
appealability is denied pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c).
