United States District Court, W.D. Washington, Tacoma
August 20, 2014
MICHAEL JAY LEE HARVEY, Petitioner,
PAT GLEBE, Respondent.
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
BENJAMIN H. SETTLE, District Judge.
This matter comes before the Court on the Report and Recommendation ("R&R") of the Honorable Karen L. Strombom, United States Magistrate Judge (Dkt. 23), and Petitioner Michael Jay Lee Harvey's ("Harvey") objections to the R&R (Dkt. 25).
On June 23, 2014, Judge Strombom issued the R&R recommending that the Court deny Harvey's petition. Dkt. 23. On July 18, 2014, Harvey filed objections. Dkt. 25. Although Harvey raises numerous objections, he fails to show that Judge Strombom made any error of law. Moreover, Harvey cites state law in support of his arguments, which is insufficient to show that the last state court decision regarding Harvey's conviction resulted in an error of federal law. See Dkt. 25. Therefore, the Court having considered the R&R, Harvey's objections, and the remaining record, does hereby find and order as follows:
(1) The R&R is ADOPTED;
(2) Harvey's petition is DENIED;
(3) A Certificate of Appealability is DENIED; and
(4) This action is DISMISSED.
