KIM R. GIBSON, District Judge.
On September 9, 2014, the above captioned case was initiated by the filing of a Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus (ECF No. 1) and was referred to a United States Magistrate Judge for pretrial proceedings in accordance with the Magistrate Judges Act, 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1), and the Local Rules of Court for Magistrate Judges.
The magistrate judge filed a Report and Recommendation on February 9, 2015 (ECF No. 13), recommending that the Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus be dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.

AND NOW, this 4th day of March, 2015:
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus is DISMISSED for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.
