JAY KRAVITZ Petitioner, Pro Se Earlton, NY.
PRISCILLA I. STEWARD, ESQ., Ass't Attorney General, HON. ERIC T. SCHNEIDERMAN, Attorney General for the State of New York Attorney for Respondent New York, NY.
DAVID N. HURD, District Judge.
Pro se petitioner Jay Kravitz brought this petition for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. On July 30, 2014, the Honorable Randolph F. Treece, United States Magistrate Judge, advised, by Report-Recommendation, that the petition be denied. Petitioner timely filed objections to the Report-Recommendation.
Based upon a de novo review of the portions of the Report-Recommendation to which petitioner objected, the Report-Recommendation is adopted in whole. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); Rule 10, Rules Governing Section 2254 Cases.
Therefore, it is
1. The petition for a writ of habeas corpus is DENIED and DISMISSED; and
2. The Clerk is directed to close the file.
Because petitioner has not made a substantial showing of the denial of any constitutional right, a certificate of appealability will not issue. See 28 U.S.C. § 2253.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
