UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
September 30, 2011
MUHAMMAD RIVERS, PETITIONER,
JOSEPH COSTELLO, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Thomas J. McAVOY, Senior United States District Judge
DECISION & ORDER
This pro se petition for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 was referred to the Hon. Randolh F. Treece, United States Magistrate Judge, for a Report and Recommendation pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and Local Rule 72.4.
No objections to the Report and Recommendation and Order dated September 9, 2011 have been filed. After examining the record, this Court has determined that the Report and Recommendation is not subject to attack for plain error or manifest injustice. Accordingly, this Court adopts the Report and Recommendation for the reasons stated therein. This Court further agrees that a Certificate of Appealability is not warranted.
It is therefore ORDERED that the petition for a writ of habeas corpus is DENIED and DISMISSED. Because there is no substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right, a certificate of appealability is also DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
