MEMORANDUM ORDER

SEAN J. McLAUGHLIN, Chief District Judge.



The petitioner, Shawn Richard Coudriet, filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus

pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. This case 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 June 17, 2013, the Magistrate Judge issued

a Report and Recommendation ("R&R") [ECF No. 3] in which she explained that the claims that

Coudriet has raised are not sufficient to proceed in habeas. The Magistrate Judge recommended

that, unless Coudriet files an amended petition in which he states an adequate claim, the petition

be summarily dismissed without service and a certificate of appealability be denied. 28 U.S.C.

§ 2243; Rule 4 of the Rules Governing Section 2254 Cases In the United States District Court.



Objections to the R&R were due by July 5, 2013. Coudriet did not file any. In late June,

he did file a motion for an extension to file the amended petition. [ECF No. 4]. That motion was

granted and he was ordered to file the amended petition on or before July 29, 2013. The Court

expressly advised him that "[i]f [he] does not file his amended petition by the due date, the Court

will assume that he has decided to proceed with his original petition." [ECF No. 5].

AND NOW, this 30th day of July, 2013;

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the petition for a writ of habeas corpus is DISMISSED

and a certificate of appealability is DENIED.

June 17, 2013, is adopted as the opinion of the Court.
