UNITED STATES OF AMERICA PLAINTIFF,
TRENT DONYA ANTWINE, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: John W. Sedwick United States District Judge
ORDER FROM CHAMBERS
) [Re: Motion at docket 693]
I. MOTION PRESENTED
At docket 693 plaintiff filed a motion to dismiss defendant's § 2255 motion as untimely filed. The motion to dismiss was briefed, and the magistrate judge to whom the matter had been referred, Magistrate Judge Roberts, filed a report at docket 700 recommending that the motion to dismiss be denied as to Ground One and granted as to Ground Two of the § 2255 motion. Timely objections were filed by plaintiff at docket 704. Defendant filed no objections and did not respond to the objections filed by plaintiff. Thereafter, the magistrate judge filed a final report at docket 708 which addressed the objections and which continued to recommend that the motion to dismiss be denied as to Ground One and granted as to Ground Two.
II. STANDARD OF REVIEW
The district court may "accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in
part, the findings or recommendations made by the
magistrate."*fn1 When reviewing a magistrate
judge's report and recommendation in a case such as this one, the district
court conducts de novo review of all conclusions of law,*fn2
and any findings of fact to which objections have been
made.*fn3 Uncontested findings of fact are reviewed
for clear error.*fn4
Having reviewed the file and applied the standard of review articulated above, this court concludes that the magistrate judge has correctly found the facts and applied the law. There is nothing in defendant's objections which is not correctly addressed by the magistrate judge at docket 708. This court adopts Magistrate Judge Roberts' thorough analysis and his recommended findings and conclusions. Based thereon, the motion at docket 693 is DENIED as to Ground One and GRANTED as to Ground Two.
