Petitioner was on parole and arrested after police executed a search warrant for his house that revealed drugs, drug paraphernalia, and weapons. The police relied on a confidential [*2] informant to obtain the search warrant. Petitioner was convicted and sentenced accordingly. Petitioner’s appeals were denied and he filed a Writ of Habeas Corpus alleging ineffective assistance of counsel on multiple levels. The Magistrate Judge recommended Petitioner’s writ be denied and Petitioner made numerous objections. This Court reviewed the Magistrate’s recommendation and Petitioner’s objections and concludes Petitioner was not prejudiced by ineffective assistance of counsel and he cannot meet his burden for Writ of Habeas Corpus. The Magistrate’s recommendations should be adopted and Petitioner’s writ denied.
Petitioner Guadalupe Ramirez, Jr. (“Petitioner”) Jan. 15–A lawsuit against the Kerrville Police Department will go to trial March 28. In a memorandum issued Tuesday, federal Magistrate Judge John W. Primomo denied a request Tuesday for a summary judgment for plaintiff Rachel Wood. After the video was made public, questions arose as to whether Wood fell or tripped herself over a curb. The fall knocked out six of Wood’s teeth and required surgery, costing her more than the $35,000 named in the suit, Ellison said in July.
A summary judgment allows the court to dispose of a case without a trial when facts aren’t in dispute.
On this date, the Court considered the Memorandum and Recommendation filed by Magistrate Judge John Primomo and Plaintiff’s objections thereto, concerning Plaintiff’s application for a writ of habeas corpus, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254, challenging a state prison disciplinary sanction. After careful consideration, the Court ACCEPTS the Magistrate Judge’s recommendation and DISMISSES the case.
Petitioner Mike E. Dossett, Jr. seeks to challenge a jury conviction of murder in Texas state court in which he claims that his substantive due process rights were violated. Petitioner alleges that (1) his attorney rendered ineffective assistance of counsel, (2) the evidence was insufficient, (3) there was no chain of custody for the sexual assault kit used as evidence, (4) extraneous offence evidence was improperly admitted, (5) the prosecution failed to produce evidence favorable [*2] to the defendant, (6) his conviction was obtained in violation of his right against self-incrimination, (7) his conviction was obtained by the use of a coerced statement, and (8) cumulative errors violated due process and his right to a fair trial. Petitioner asks the Court to provide declaratory and injunctive relief.
OVERVIEW: The inmate claimed he was entitled to release due to his good time and work credits under the mandatory supervision and parole rules and claimed that he was being forced to perform manual labor in violation of the involuntary servitude provision of the Thirteenth Amendment. The court determined that the inmate was correct that he was eligible for mandatory supervision under Tex. Gov’t. Code § 508.149. However, he was not entitled to release, as this decision was left to the discretion of the parole board. The inmate could not claim a constitutional violation based upon his disagreement with the parole board’s decision. The inmate could not use a federal habeas application to challenge this determination. The court found the inmate’s claim that he was being subjected to involuntary servitude was without merit, as he had been duly convicted and sentenced and Texas law clearly provided Texas prison officials with the ability to force inmates to perform manual labor.
Before the Court is Petitioner’s application for a writ of habeas corpus, filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241. The application was referred to United States Magistrate Judge John Primomo. Judge Primomo filed a Memorandum and Recommendation on September 15, 2004, recommending that the application be dismissed. Petitioner filed objections to the Memorandum and Recommendation on September 28, 2004. After considering Petitioner’s application, the recommendation of the Magistrate Judge, and Petitioner’s objections, the Court is of the opinion that the recommendation should be accepted and Petitioner’s application should be DISMISSED.
“I can assure you that whether you voted for him or you did not vote for him, if you are a citizen of the United States, he is your president,” Judge John Primomo said, according to KENS 5. “He will be your president and if you do not like that, you need to go to another country.”
From the start of his presidential campaign, Trump made attacking immigrants a central component of his candidacy. He called Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals and pledged to ban all Muslim immigrants from entering the U.S. On Friday, he announced he would nominate Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), a staunch anti-immigration hardliner, as his attorney general.
Primomo told KENS 5 that his comments were intended to be unifying and that he meant them to be respectful to the office of the president. He also criticized demonstrators who have been protesting Trump since he was elected on Nov. 8. Since the election, there has also been an uptick in attacks on minority groups in the United States, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The most hopeful comments at the San Antonio ceremony came from the immigrants who were becoming citizens for the first time.
“The essence of Americans is that you have the right to vote and choose [who] to represent you,” Rafael Guerra, a new U.S. citizen who was born in Mexico, told the station.
