October 28, 2015

REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS - Farmer's habeas corpus claims are barred by his procedural default in presenting them to the state courts. His Petition should therefore be dismissed with prejudice. Because reasonable jurists would not disagree with this conclusion, Petitioner should be denied a certificate of appealability and the Court should certify to the Sixth Circuit that any appeal would be objectively frivolous and therefore should not be permitted to proceed in forma pauperis. Objections to R&R due by 11/16/2015. Signed by Magistrate Judge Michael R. Merz on 10/28/2015. (kpf)(This document has been sent by regular mail to the party(ies) listed in the NEF that did not receive electronic notification.)

SECOND SUPPLEMENTAL REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS ON MOTION TO AMEND THE JUDGMENT - Most of the arguments made in this new filing have already been dealt with in the Supplemental Report and Recommendations. Farmer is unclear upon which issue he seeks a certificate of appealability. If it is on the substance of his habeas corpus petition, Judge Rose has already decided that no certificate should be permitted on those issues (Entry and Order, ECF No. 8, PageID 32-33). Farmer is of course free to re-apply to the Sixth Circuit for such a certificate. Because he has not shown any other jurist who agrees with his position, Farmer should be denied a certificate of appealability on the question whether the Magistrate Judge properly considered and rendered a report and recommendations on the Rule 59(e) motion under 28 U.S.C. ยง 636(b)(2)(3). Objections to R&R due by 2/16/2016. Signed by Magistrate Judge Michael R. Merz on 1/28/2016. (kpf)(This document has been sent by regular mail to the party(ies) listed in the NEF that did not receive electronic notification.)
