BOBBY L. MEEKS, Respondent.
MARK R. HORNAK, District Judge.
This habeas action filed by federal prisoner Sherman Crayton Fluellen pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241 was referred to United States Magistrate Judge Susan Paradise Baxter for a report and recommendation in accordance with 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Rule 72 of the Local Rules for Magistrate Judges. On February 27, 2015, the Magistrate Judge issued a Report and Recommendation (ECF No.7) in which she recommended that the petition be dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.

Petitioner did not file objections, and he has not sought an extension of time in which to do so.
After de novo review of the pleadings and documents in the case, together with the Report and Recommendation, the following order is entered:
AND NOW, this 8th day of April, 2015:
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the petition for a writ of habeas corpus is DISMISSED FOR LACK OF JURISDICTION.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Report and Recommendation (ECF No.7) is ADOPTED as the Opinion of the Court.
