Maher v. State

2009 | Cited 0 times | D. Maine | October 19, 2009


The United States Magistrate Judge filed with the Court on July 7, 2009, her Recommended Decision (Docket No. 9). Petitioner filed his Objection to the Recommended Decision (Docket No. 14) on October 16, 2009.

I have reviewed and considered the Magistrate Judge's Recommended Decision, together with the entire record; I have made a de novo determination of all matters adjudicated by the Magistrate Judge's Recommended Decision; and I concur with the recommendations of the United States Magistrate Judge for the reasons set forth in her Recommended Decision, and determine that no further proceeding is necessary.

1. It is therefore ORDERED that the Recommended Decision of the Magistrate Judge is hereby AFFIRMED.

2. It is hereby ORDERED that Petitioner's 28 U.S.C. § 2254 Petition (Docket No. 1) is DENIED.

3. It is further ORDERED that a certificate of appealability shall not issue in the event that Petitioner files a notice of appeal because there is no substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right within the meaning of 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2).
