MYRON H. THOMPSON, District Judge.
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254, petitioner, a state inmate, filed this lawsuit seeking habeas relief. This lawsuit is now before the court on the recommendation of the United States Magistrate Judge that petitioner's writ petition be denied because he has failed to exhaust state remedies. There are no objections to the recommendation. After an independent and de novo review of the record, the court concludes that the magistrate judge's recommendation should be adopted.
An appropriate judgment will be entered.
