Pardee v. Bone

March 29, 2010

SCOTT ALAN PARDEE, PLAINTIFF,
v.
UNKNOWN BONE, ET. AL., DEFENDANTS.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gordon J. Quist United States District Judge

HON. GORDON J. QUIST

ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION

The Court has reviewed the Report and Recommendation filed by the United States Magistrate Judge in this action on February 16, 2010. The Report and Recommendation was duly served on the parties. In accordance with 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1), the Court has performed de novo consideration of those portions of the Report and Recommendation to which objection has been made. The Court finds Plaintiff's objections to be without merit.

Plaintiff claims that Defendants' search of his cell and discovery of two uneaten burritos, a rope over ten feet in length made from torn sheets, and a damaged mattress was in retaliation for Plaintiff's grievances. In submitting objections, a "party shall file and serve written objections which shall specifically identify the portions of the proposed findings, recommendations or report to which objections are made and the basis for such objections." W.D. Mich. LCivR 72.3(b). An objection which is not "clear enough to enable the district court to discern those issues that are dispositive and contentious," is insufficient to permit review of the magistrate's report. Miller v. Currie, 50 F.3d 373, 380 (6th Cir. 1995). Thus, "a general objection to a magistrate's report, which fails to specify the issues of contention, does not satisfy the requirement that an objection be filed." Id. Here, Plaintiff makes a conclusory objection to the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation with a general citation to "the record and documents." Plaintiff further fails to cite any competent evidence or case law to support his conspiracy and retaliation claims. Thus, Plaintiff's objection is without merit.

Accordingly,

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation (Docket no. 37) is ADOPTED as the Opinion of the Court.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Defendants' motions for summary judgment (Docket nos. 19 and 26) are GRANTED. Defendants' proposed order for an enlargement of time to respond (Docket no. 10) is DISMISSED AS MOOT.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Plaintiff's motion to appoint counsel (Docket no. 33) is DISMISSED AS MOOT.

This case is closed.
