United States District Court, D. South Carolina
June 19, 2014
John L. Penza, Plaintiff,
Quintressa Mungo; Matthew Harper; Warden Larry Cartledge; South Carolina Department of Corrections, Defendants.
JOSEPH F. ANDERSON, Jr., District Judge.
The pro se plaintiff, John L. Penza, filed an action in the Court of Common Pleas for Greenville County, South Carolina. The defendants then removed the action to this court contending that the plaintiff was asserting federal constitutional claims under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. The plaintiff then moved to remand the case back to state court asserting that he only wanted to raise state constitutional claims of negligence.
The Magistrate Judge assigned to this action has prepared a Report and Recommendation and opines that the matter should be remanded to state court. The Report sets forth in detail the relevant facts and standards of law on this matter, and the court incorporates such without a recitation.
The parties were advised of their right to file objections to the Report and Recommendation, which was entered on the docket on May 13, 2014. Neither party filed objections. In the absence of specific objections to the Report of the Magistrate Judge, this court is not required to give any explanation for adopting the recommendation. See Camby v. Davis, 718 F.2d 198, 199 (4th Cir. 1983).
After a careful review of the record, the applicable law, and the Report and Recommendation, the court finds the Magistrate Judge's recommendation proper and incorporates it herein by reference. Accordingly, this action is remanded to Court of Common Pleas for Greenville County, South Carolina.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
