|PENNY LUCERO, Warden, New Mexico Women's Correctional Facility; ATTORNEY GENERAL STATE OF NEW MEXICO,|
Bernadette Setser seeks a certificate of appealability to challenge the district court's denial of her 28 U.S.C. § 2254 petition. Because Setser has not made a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right, see 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2), we deny a certificate and dismiss this appeal.
Setser raised three claims in her petition: (1) that her confessions should have been suppressed at trial; (2) that tardy disclosure of a witness statement denied her confrontation rights and constituted prosecutorial misconduct; and (3) that she was denied a right of allocution. The magistrate judge conducted a searching analysis of each claim and determined that each lacked merit, and the district court adopted the magistrate judge's Proposed Findings and Recommended Disposition in toto, after a de novo review. We have undertaken a thorough review of the magistrate judge's Proposed Findings and Recommended Disposition and of the authorities cited therein. We have also carefully examined each of the authorities cited by Setser in her Application for Certificate of Appealability. We are satisfied that the magistrate judge's conclusions are entirely correct.
We note that in her objections to the magistrate judge's Proposed Findings and Recommended Disposition, Setser raised (or at least alluded to) arguments that were not raised in her petition and which the district court did not address. "Issues raised for the first time in objections to the magistrate judge's recommendation are deemed waived." Marshall v. Chater, 75 F.3d 1421, 1426 (10th Cir. 1996).
Accordingly, we DENY a certificate of appealability and DISMISS this appeal.
