COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, et al.
JUAN R. SNCHEZ, District Judge.
AND NOW, this 23rd day of January, 2014, upon careful and independent consideration of Petitioner Kenard Anderson's pro se Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus Under 28 U.S.C. § 2241 and the response thereto, and after review of the Report and Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge Thomas J. Reuter, to which no objections have been filed,  it is ORDERED:
1. The Report and Recommendation (Document 8) is APPROVED and ADOPTED;
2. Anderson's petition for writ of habeas corpus (Document 1) is DISMISSED without prejudice for failure to exhaust state remedies; and
3. A certificate of appealability shall not issue, as Anderson has not demonstrated that reasonable jurists would debate the correctness of this procedural ruling. See 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2); Slack v. McDaniel, 529 U.S. 473, 484 (2000).
The Clerk of Court is DIRECTED to mark this case CLOSED.
