United States District Court, D. Oregon
February 20, 2015
RICARDO MORENO-MARTINEZ, Petitioner,
RICK COURSEY, Respondent.
OPINION AND ORDER
MICHAEL J. McSHANE, District Judge.
Petitioner, prose, brings this petition seeking habeas corpus relief under 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Petitioner seeks to challenge four state court convictions, including one count of attempted murder, ORS § 161.405(2)(a), two counts of assault in the first degree, ORS § 163.185, and one count of assault in the second degree, ORS § 163.175, because of (1) an alleged unconstitutional denial of a trial continuance request and (2) alleged ineffective assistance of counsel. See Pet. Writ Habeas Corpus 5, ECF No.2. Magistrate Judge Mark D. Clarke issued a Report and Recommendation on December 9, 2014, recommending denial. The matter is now before this Court. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B); Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b).
Because no objections to the Report and Recommendation were timely filed, this Court reviews only the legal principles de novo. United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003) (en bane); see also United States v. Bernhardt, 840 F.2d 1441, 1445 (9th Cir. 1988). Upon review, this Court finds no error in Judge Clarke's Report and Recommendation, ECF No. 25.
This Court ADOPTS Judge Clarke's Report and Recommendation, ECF No. 25, in full. Petitioner's petition, ECF No. 2, is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
