SHELLY D. DICK, District Judge.
The Court has carefully considered the Petition,  the record, the law applicable to this action, and the Report and Recommendation  of United States Magistrate Judge Richard L. Bourgeois, Jr. dated April 6, 2015. Plaintiff has filed an Objection  which the Court has also considered.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of Court administratively close this action until such time as the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit authorizes Petitioner to file this successive habeas corpus application.
