Report and Recommendation that Respondent's arguments based on procedural default of Baker's claims in the state courts, and the applicable law, Baker has not demonstrated that he is in custody pursuant to a judgment of the state court which resulted in a decision that was contrary to or involved an unreasonable application of Federal law as determined by the Supreme Court of the United States or was the result of a decision based on an unreasonable interpretation of the facts in light of the evidence in the State court proceeding. Baker has not demonstrated any error resulting in denial of fundamental fairness or cause to hesitate due to the probability of actual innocence. Finally, there has been no demonstrated need for an evidentiary hearing, and it is recommended that Bakers petition for federal habeas corpus be denied. Objections to R&R due by 9/8/2008. Magistrate Judge James S. Gallas on 8/25/2008. (W,G)
