UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
December 19, 2005
KHALID WEST, PETITIONER,
JOSEPH T. SMITH, SUPERINTENDENT, SHAWANGUNK CORRECTIONAL FACILITY, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gershon, United States District Judge
Magistrate Judge Lois Bloom's Report and Recommendation of October 7, 2005 recommends denial of this petition for a writ of habeas corpus, which challenges a March 18, 1997 conviction in state court. I have reviewed the Report and Recommendation and petitioner's objections, which are without merit. Judge Bloom has addressed every issue in a thorough and well-reasoned manner. Her Report and Recommendation is adopted and the petition is denied. As petitioner has failed to make a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right, a certificate of appealability is denied.
