United States District Court, S.D. New York
April 30, 2014
ROGER BEECHAM, Petitioner,
BRUCE YELLCH, Superintendent, Respondent.
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
CATHY SEIBEL, District Judge.
Before the Court is the Report and Recommendation of Magistrate Judge Paul E. Davison dated April 11, 2014 ("the R&R"). (Doc. 17.) No objections to the R&R have been filed. Accordingly, I have reviewed it for clear error, and find no error, clear or otherwise. The R&R is therefore hereby adopted as the decision of the Court, and the Petition is denied. The Clerk of Court is respectfully directed to close the case. Because reasonable jurists would not find it debatable that Petitioner has failed to make a substantial showing that he was denied a constitutional right, and that Petitioner's Miranda claim is procedurally barred, no certificate of appealability will issue. See 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c); Slack v. McDaniel, 529 U.S. 473, 483-84 (2000).
