N.D. OF ALABAMA
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
WILLIAM JEROME TRAMMELL,
Case No.: 1:18-cv-00129-LSC-JEO
The magistrate judge filed a report on September 11, 2018, recommending
the defendant’s motion for summary judgment be granted on the plaintiff’s Fourth
Amendment, coerced confession, and false imprisonment claims; that the
remainder of the plaintiff’s federal claims be dismissed without prejudice pursuant
to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B) for failing to state a claim upon which relief may be
granted; and that the plaintiff’s state law claims be dismissed without prejudice.
(Doc. 30). Although the magistrate judge advised the plaintiff of his right to file
specific written objections within fourteen (14) days, no objections have been
received by the court and the time to file objections has expired.
Having carefully reviewed and considered de novo all the materials in the
court file, including the report and recommendation, the magistrate judge’s report
is hereby ADOPTED and the recommendation is ACCEPTED.
EXPRESSLY FINDS that there are no genuine issues of material fact and the
defendant is entitled to judgment as a matter of law. Accordingly, the defendant’s
motion for summary judgment (doc. 28), is due to be granted on the claims set
forth above, and the remainder of the claims are due to be dismissed without
A Final Judgment will be entered.
DONE and ORDERED on October 10, 2018.
L. Scott Coogler
United States District Judge
