Delgado-Paz v. United States

United States District Court, N.D. Georgia, Atlanta Division

August 19, 2014

ALFONZO DELGADO-PAZ, Petitioner,
v.
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Respondent. Civil Action No. 1:14-cv-54-TCB.

ORDER

TIMOTHY C. BATTEN, Sr., District Judge.

This case is before the Court is the magistrate judge's report and recommendation [119]. No objections to the R&R have been filed.

A district judge has a duty to conduct a "careful and complete" review of a magistrate judge's R&R. Williams v. Wainwright, 681 F.2d 732, 732 (11th Cir. 1982) (quoting Nettles v. Wainwright, 677 F.2d 404, 408 (5th Cir. 1982) (en banc)) (internal quotation mark omitted).[1] This review may take different forms, however, depending on whether there are objections to the R&R. The district judge must "make a de novo determination of those portions of the [R&R] to which objection is made." 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C). In contrast, those portions of the R&R to which no objection is made need only be reviewed for clear error. Macort v. Prem, Inc., 208 F.App'x 781, 784 (11th Cir. 2006).[2]

After conducting a complete and careful review of the R&R, the district judge may accept, reject or modify the magistrate judge's findings and recommendations. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C); Williams, 681 F.2d at 732. The district judge may also receive further evidence or recommit the matter to the magistrate judge with instructions. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C).

The Court has conducted a careful and complete review of the R&R and finds no clear error in its factual findings or legal conclusions. Therefore, the Court ADOPTS AS ITS ORDER the R&R [119]. Petitioner's 28 U.S.C. § 2255 motion [116] is DENIED, a certificate of appealability is DENIED, and the Clerk is DIRECTED to close this case.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
