CASE NO. 2:17-CV-94-WKW
Before the court is the Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge (Doc. # 29),
to which Plaintiff Alex Smith, Jr., has filed objections (Doc. # 30). The court has
conducted an independent and de novo review of those portions of the
Recommendation to which objection is made. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b).
In the Recommendation, the Magistrate Judge determined that the RookerFeldman doctrine barred Mr. Smith’s requested relief, and alternatively that Mr.
Smith failed to establish the requisite elements for an injunction to issue. Mr. Smith
objects to both of these findings. These objections are without a basis in fact or in
law, and are due to be overruled.
Accordingly, it is ORDERED as follows:
The objection filed by Plaintiff Alex Smith, Jr. (Doc. # 30), is
The Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge (Doc. # 29) is
Plaintiff’s motion for preliminary injunction (Doc. # 1) is DENIED for
lack of jurisdiction under Rooker-Feldman and for Plaintiff’s failure to establish the
requisite elements of a preliminary injunction; and
This case is REFERRED back to the Magistrate Judge for further
DONE this 30th day of June, 2017.
