United States District Court, N.D. Alabama, Eastern Division
December 19, 2014
TOREY GARTRELL, Petitioner,
JOHN RATHMAN, Warden, Respondent.
VIRGINIA EMERSON HOPKINS, District Judge.
In this case, Petitioner Torey Gartrell, a federal prisoner acting pro se, seeks a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241 and the "savings clause" of 28 U.S.C. § 2255(e). (Doc. 1). The magistrate judge has entered a report and recommendation, see 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B), LR 72.1(b)(3)(A), recommending that the action be dismissed for want of jurisdiction. (Doc. 4). No objections have been filed, and the time allowed for doing so has expired.
Having carefully reviewed and considered de novo all the materials in the court file, including the magistrate judge's report and recommendation, the court is of the opinion that the magistrate judge's findings are due to be and are hereby ADOPTED and his recommendation is ACCEPTED. Accordingly, the petition for writ of habeas corpus is due to be DISMISSED for lack of jurisdiction. A separate final order will be entered.
