UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
November 5, 2009
JOSHUA GOODWIN, PETITIONER,
GEORGE DUNCAN, SUPERINTENDENT, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Honorable Richard J. Arcara Chief Judge United States District Court
The above-referenced case was referred to Magistrate Judge Victor E. Bianchini, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). On August 11, 2009, Magistrate Judge Bianchini filed a Report and Recommendation, recommending that petitioner's request for a writ of habeas corpus be denied and the petition be dismissed.
The Court has carefully reviewed the Report and Recommendation, the record in this case, and the pleadings and materials submitted by the parties, and no objections having been timely filed, it is hereby
ORDERED, that pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1), and for the reasons set forth in Magistrate Judge Bianchini's Report and Recommendation, petitioner's request for a writ of habeas corpus is denied and the petition is dismissed.
The Court finds that petitioner has failed to make a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right and therefore denies his motion for a certificate of appealability. 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2).
The Clerk of Court shall take all steps necessary to close the case.
