United States District Court, M.D. Alabama, Northern Division
September 2, 2014
ELMO ANTONIO GEORGE, #XXXXX-XXX, Petitioner,
DENNIS W. STAMPER, Respondent.
W. KEITH WATKINS, Chief District Judge.
On August 4, 2014, the Magistrate Judge filed a Recommendation (Doc. # 4), to which Petitioner filed a timely objection (Doc. #5). The court has conducted an independent and de novo review of those portions of the Recommendation to which objection is made. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b).
Accordingly, it is ORDERED as follows:
1. Petitioner's objection (Doc. # 5) is OVERRULED.
2. The Recommendation (Doc. # 4) is ADOPTED.
3. The petition for writ of habeas corpus under 28 U.S.C. § 2241 is
DISMISSED without prejudice as Petitioner has not demonstrated his entitlement to proceed under that section and this court lacks jurisdiction to hear a challenge to Petitioner's conviction and sentence under 28 U.S.C. § 2255.
