Martin v. Miley

United States District Court, D. South Carolina, Greenville Division

April 23, 2015

Henry J. Martin, Jr., Plaintiff,
v.
Cpt. Myecha Miley, Defendant.

ORDER

TIMOTHY M. CAIN, District Judge.

Plaintiff, a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis, filed this action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. In accordance with 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Local Civil Rule 73.02, D.S.C., this matter was referred to a magistrate judge for pretrial handling. Before the court is the magistrate judge's Report and Recommendation ("Report"), recommending that Defendant's motion for summary judgment be granted. (ECF No. 84). Plaintiff was advised of his right to file objections to the Report, and he has filed timely objections. (ECF No. 86).

The Report has no presumptive weight and the responsibility to make a final determination in this matter remains with this court. See Mathews v. Weber, 423 U.S. 261, 270-71 (1976).

Orpiano v. Johnson, 687 F.2d 44, 47 (4th Cir. 1982). In that case, the court reviews the Report only for clear error. See Diamond v. Colonial Life & Accident Ins. Co., 416 F.3d 310, 315 (4th Cir. 2005).

Plaintiff's objections fail to address any specific, dispositive portion of the Report. The objections are non-specific, unrelated to the dispositive portions of the Report, or merely restate Plaintiff's claims. The court has thoroughly reviewed the Report and Plaintiff's objections and finds no reason to deviate from the Report's recommended disposition.

Accordingly, the court adopts the Magistrate Judge's Report (ECF No. 84) and incorporates it herein. It is therefore ORDERED that Defendant's motion for ...
