On April 17, 2012, the Magistrate Judge filed a Report and Recommendation
(Doc. # 26) regarding Plaintiff’s “Emergency Protective Order” (Doc. # 22). Plaintiff
filed a timely objection. (Doc. # 33.) The court reviews de novo the portion of the

the Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge (Doc. # 26) is ADOPTED;
Plaintiff’s Motion for a temporary restraining order (Doc. # 22) is
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b), this case is REFERRED back to the
Magistrate Judge for all pretrial proceedings and entry of any orders or
other recommendations as may be appropriate.
