King v. Walsh

United States District Court, M.D. Pennsylvania

September 16, 2014

CHRIS KING, Petitioner,
v.
JEROME WALSH, et al., Respondents.

ORDER

JOHN E. JONES, III, District Judge.

AND NOW, upon consideration of the Report and Recommendation of Chief United States Magistrate Judge Martin C. Carlson (Doc. 18), recommending that the Petitioner's Writ of Habeas Corpus (Doc. 1) be denied because Petitioner's trial attorney made sound tactical choices that were reasonable under the circumstances; the trial court's evidentiary rulings and trial management decisions were proper and fell within the broad range of discretion afforded to trial judges; and habeas challenges to a state court's sentencing discretion are unreviewable by a federal court provided that the sentence lies within the statutory guidelines, and noting that Petitioner has not filed objections and that there is no clear error on the record, [1] see Nara v. Frank, 488 F.3d 187, 194 (3d Cir. 2007) (explaining that "failing to timely object to [a report and recommendation] in a civil proceeding may result in forfeiture of de novo review at the district court level") and the Court finding Judge Carlson's analysis to be extremely thorough, well-reasoned, and fully supported by the record IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT:

1. The Report and Recommendation of Magistrate Judge Carlson (Doc. 18) is ADOPTED in its entirety.
2. The petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus (Doc. 1) is DENIED.
3. The Court DECLINES to issue a certificate of appealability.
