UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
August 1, 2006
DENNIS HINDS, PETITIONER,
BRIAN S. FISCHER, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Jed S. Rakoff, U.S.D.J.
On July 5, 2006, the Honorable Frank Maas, United States Magistrate Judge, issued a Report and Recommendation in the above-captioned matter recommending that this petition for habeas corpus be denied.
Petitioner has failed to file any objection to the Report and Recommendation, and, for that reason alone, has waived any right to review by this Court. See Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 147-48 (1985); Mario v. P & C Food Markets, Inc., 313 F.3d 758, 766 (2d Cir. 2002); Spence v. Superintendent, Great Meadow Corr. Facility, 219 F.3d 162, 174 (2d Cir. 2000). Accordingly, the Court hereby adopts the Report and Recommendation, and, for the reasons therein, dismisses the petition with prejudice. In addition, because petitioner has not made a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right, a certificate of appealability will not issue, see 28 U.S.C. § 2253, and the Court certifies pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3) that any appeal from this Order would not be taken in good faith. Moreover, as petitioner's claim lacks any arguable basis in law or fact, permission to proceed in forma pauperis is also denied. 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g); see also Seimon v. Emigrant Says. Bank (In re Seimon), 421 F.3d 167, 169 (2d Cir. 2005). Clerk to enter judgment.
