June 8, 2015
ARTHUR ARNDT, Plaintiff,
RAYMOND BOOKER and CHARLES SINCLAIR, Defendants.
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION AND GRANTING DEFENDANT BOOKER'S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT
PATRICK J. DUGGAN, District Judge.
On November 25, 2013, Plaintiff Arthur Arndt, a prisoner in the custody of the Michigan Department of Corrections ("MDOC") at the time, instituted this pro se prisoner's civil rights case against Defendants Raymond Booker and Charles Sinclair, alleging that Defendants violated the Eighth Amendment by acting in deliberate indifference to Plaintiff's serious medical needs. On January 27, 2015, Defendant Booker filed a summary judgment motion pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 56, which was referred to Magistrate Judge R. Steven Whalen in accordance with the authority granted by 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B).
On April 30, 2015, Magistrate Judge Whalen issued a Report and Recommendation ("R&R") recommending that this Court grant Defendant Booker's unopposed summary judgment motion. At the conclusion of his R&R, Magistrate Judge Whalen informed the parties that any objections to the R&R must be filed within fourteen days and that the failure to file specific objections constitutes a waiver of any further right of appeal. Neither party filed objections to the R&R, and the time for doing so has expired.
Having reviewed the Complaint, Defendant Booker's Motion, and the R&R, the Court concurs with the conclusions reached by Magistrate Judge Whalen.
IT IS ORDERED that Magistrate Judge Whalen's R&R is ADOPTED, Defendant Raymond Booker's Motion for Summary Judgment is GRANTED, and, having entered summary judgment in favor of the only remaining defendant, this civil action is DISMISSED.
