Petitioner filed no objections to the Magistrate Judge's Report.
Having carefully considered the Petition (Doc. 4) and related filings- including the State's answer and Petitioner's opposition to the State's answer (Docs. 9, 11)-the Court APPROVES the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation (Doc. 13) and ADOPTS it as the Court's opinion in this matter.
Accordingly, for the reasons explained in the Magistrate Judge's Report, IT IS ORDERED that Petitioner's § 2254 Petition (Doc. 4) is DISMISSED as untimely.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that a certificate of appealability is DENIED because Petitioner has failed to make "a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right." 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2).
