IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
Civil Action No. 2:16CV943-WHA
This case is before the court on a Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge (Doc. #4) and
the Plaintiff’s Objection thereto (Doc. #5).
Following an independent evaluation and de novo review of the file in this case, the court
has determined that the Objection is without merit.
The Magistrate Judge found no subject matter jurisdiction and recommended dismissal
prior to service of process. The Plaintiff does not address this, but asks the court to give him a
day in court to prove his case. The court agrees with the Magistrate Judge that the Plaintiff has
alleged no basis for federal court jurisdiction and it is, therefore, ORDERED as follows:
The Objection is OVERRULED.
2. The court adopts the Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge.
3. This case is DISMISSED prior to service of process, pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P.
12(h)(3) for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.
DONE this 28th day of February, 2017.
