U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
JULIAN KING, Talladega Co. Sr.
Circuit Court Judge, et al.,
Case No. 1:17-cv-01632-KOB-HNJ
MEMORANDUM OF OPINION
The magistrate judge filed a report on July 31, 2018, recommending that this
action filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 be dismissed without prejudice for failing
to state a claim upon which relief may be granted pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915A(b).
(Doc. 8). Although the magistrate judge advised the plaintiff of his right to file
specific written objections within fourteen days, the plaintiff filed no objections.
Instead, the plaintiff filed a third amended complaint without seeking leave of court.
The court first construes the amended complaint as objections to the report and
recommendation and finds that the objections consist of repetitious claims previously
raised in his second amended complaint and its supplement. The court alternatively
construes the amended complaint as a motion for leave to amend the complaint and
DENIES the motion because of the duplicative nature of the proposed amended
complaint and the futility of the claims set out in it.
Having carefully reviewed and considered de novo all the materials in the court
file, including the report and recommendation, and the plaintiff’s objections, the court
ADOPTS the magistrate judge’s report and ACCEPTS his recommendation. In
accordance with 28 U.S.C. § 1915A(b), this action is due to be dismissed without
prejudice for failing to state a claim upon which relief may be granted.
The court will enter a separate Final Order.
DONE and ORDERED this 10th day of September, 2018.
KARON OWEN BOWDRE
CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
