JAMES F. SHERMAN, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Sean J. McLAUGHLIN United States District Judge
This petition for writ of habeas corpus was received by the Clerk of Court on December 30, 2004, and was referred to United States Magistrate Judge Susan Paradise Baxter for report and recommendation in accordance with the Magistrates Act, 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1), and Rules 72.1.3 and 72.1.4 of the Local Rules for Magistrates.
The Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation [Doc. No. 8], filed on February 23, 2006, recommended that the instant petition under 28 U.S.C. Section 2241 be dismissed for lack of jurisdiction.

After de novo review of the petition and documents in the case, together with the report and recommendation, the following order is entered:
AND NOW, this 10th Day of April, 2006;
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus is DISMISSED, for lack of jurisdiction
