Tucker v. Pentrich

United States District Court, E.D. Michigan, Southern Division

February 5, 2015

L. TUCKER, Plaintiff,
v.
T. PENTRICH, et al., Defendants.

ORDER AND OPINION ACCEPTING THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE'S JANUARY 13, 2015 REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION [76] AND DENYING PLAINTIFF'S OBJECTIONS [78]

NANCY G. EDMUNDS, District Judge.

Currently before the Court is the magistrate judge's January 13, 2015 report and recommendation. On January 30, 2015, Plaintiff filed an objection to the magistrate judge's conclusion that prison hearing officials are entitled to absolute judicial immunity. (Plf.'s Obj. at 1). Notwithstanding Plaintiff's failure to timely file his objection, the Court finds it to be without merit in any case. See Evans v. Eaton, 09-11856, 2009 WL 1606492, at *2 (E.D. Mich. June 4, 2009) ("[a]dditionally, prison hearings investigators or officers in Michigan are entitled to absolute judicial immunity from liability in a 42 U.S.C. ยง 1983 suit challenging their actions in conducting an administrative hearing." (citing Shelly v. Johnson, 849 F.2d 228, 230 (6th Cir.1988)). The Court therefore ACCEPTS and ADOPTS the magistrate judge's report and recommendation.

It is further ordered that Plaintiff's Motion for Summary Judgment [66] is DENIED, Defendants' Motion for Summary Judgment [70] is DENIED IN PART and GRANTED IN PART, and Plaintiff's objections to the magistrate judge's report and recommendation are DENIED. [78]

SO ORDERED.
