United States District Court, M.D. Georgia, Valdosta Division
August 22, 2014
DEAN ANTHONY BLANTON, Petitioner,
SHERIFF CHRIS PRINE, Respondent.
HUGH LAWSON, Senior District Judge.
Before the Court is the Recommendation of the United States Magistrate Judge (Doc. 18) that Petitioner's habeas petition under 28 U.S.C. § 2241 be dismissed. Petitioner, a pretrial detainee, has not filed an objection to the Recommendation. The Court has reviewed the Recommendation for clear error and, finding none, accepts and adopts it in full.
The Court finds that Petitioner has failed to make a substantial showing that he has been denied a constitutional right, and a certificate of appealability is therefore denied. 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2); Slack v. McDaniel , 529 U.S. 473, 483-84, 120 S.Ct. 1595, 146 L.Ed.2d 542 (2000).
