IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
JAMES CHARLEY MOON,
DR. ELLIS, et al.,
CIVIL ACTION NO. 3:18CV369-WHA
This cause is before the court on the Magistrate Judge’s Recommendation on the Motion
for Preliminary Injunction (Doc. #21) and the Plaintiff’s Objection thereto (Doc. #24).
The Plaintiff, Moon, identifies an injury sustained in July of 2017 for which he seeks
The Magistrate Judge considered the requirements for issuance of injunctive relief,
including a showing by Moon of (1) a substantial likelihood of success on the merits; (2) a
substantial threat irreparable injury will occur absent issuance of the injunction; (3) the
threatened injury outweighs the potential damage the requested injunctive relief may cause
the non-moving parties; and (4) the injunction would not be adverse to the public interest. (Doc.

Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED as follows:
1. The court adopts the Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge and the Objection is
The Motion for Preliminary Injunction (Doc. #10) is DENIED.
3. The case is referred back to the Magistrate Judge for additional proceedings with
respect to the claims raised in the complaint as amended.
Done this 6th day of June, 2018.
