United States District Court, D. Arizona
April 28, 2015
Brian Thomas Eftenoff, Petitioner,
Charles L. Ryan, et al., Respondents.
NEIL V. WAKE, District Judge.
Before the court is the Report and Recommendation ("R&R") of Magistrate Judge Michelle Burns (Doc. 35) regarding Petitioner's Motion to Stay and Abey Habeas Proceedings (Doc. 25). The R&R recommends that the Motion be denied. Petitioner filed objections to that recommendation on March 24, 2015. (Doc. 36.)
The court has considered the objections and reviewed the R&R de novo. See Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b); 28 U.S.C.§ 636(b)(1) (stating that the court must make a de novo determination of those portions of the Report and Recommendation to which specific objections are made). The court agrees with the Magistrate Judge's determinations, accepts the recommended decision within the meaning of Rule 72(b), and overrules Petitioner's objections. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C) (providing that the district court "may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the findings or recommendations made by the magistrate").
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge is accepted.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Petitioner's Motion to Stay and Abey Habeas Proceedings (Doc. 25) is denied.
This matter remains referred to Magistrate Judge Burns.
