United States District Court, D. Arizona
DOUGLAS L. RAYES, District Judge.
Pending before the Court are Petitioner Sean Patrick Husband's Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus and United States Magistrate Judge Mark E. Aspey's Report and Recommendation ("R&R"). (Docs. 1, 41.) The R&R recommends that the Court deny the Petition. (Doc. 41 at 38.) The Magistrate Judge advised the parties that they had fourteen days to file objections to the R&R and that failure to file timely objections could be considered a waiver of the right to obtain review of the R&R. ( Id. at 38-39 (citing Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b); United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003)).
Respondents did not file an objection. Petitioner filed an objection on February 9, 2015, which the Court struck on March 18, 2015, for failure to comply with the Local Rules of Civil Procedure. (Doc. 49.) The Court granted Petitioner leave to file an amended objection by April 2, 2015. ( Id. ) Petitioner did not file an amended objection, and the Court adopted the R&R on April 16, 2015. (Doc. 50.)
About two weeks later, Petitioner filed a Motion to Reconsider and/or Vacate Judgment and Alternatively for an Extension of Time, claiming that he never received the Court's order striking in his objection and that he was unaware that no objection was on the record. (Doc. 52.) After a hearing on May 13, 2015, the Court granted Petitioner's motion and gave Petitioner leave to file an objection by May 20, 2015. (Doc. 54.)
Petitioner has not filed an objection, which relieves the Court of its obligation to review the R&R. See Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d at 1121; Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985) ("[Section 636(b)(1)] does not... require any review at all... of any issue that is not the subject of an objection."); Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b)(3) ("The district judge must determine de novo any part of the magistrate judge's disposition that has been properly objected to."). The Court has nonetheless reviewed the R&R and finds that it is well-taken. The Court will accept the R&R and deny the Petition. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) (stating that the district court "may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the findings or recommendations made by the magistrate"); Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b)(3) ("The district judge may accept, reject, or modify the recommended disposition; receive further evidence; or return the matter to the magistrate judge with instructions."). Accordingly,
IT IS ORDERED that Magistrate Judge Aspey's R&R (Doc. 41) is accepted and adopted by the Court.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Petitioner's Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus (Doc. 1) is denied and dismissed with prejudice.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that a certificate of appealability and leave to proceed in forma ...
