SHELBY COUNTY DRUG
ENFORCEMENT TASK FORCE, et al., )
In this case brought pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, Plaintiff Kenneth Earl Dukes claims
violations of his rights under the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments based upon the use of false
information from a confidential informant that was used to obtain a warrant for Plaintiff’s arrest and
the posting of Plaintiff’s name and photo on the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department “Most Wanted”
website. The Magistrate Judge entered a Report that includes findings and a recommendation that
Defendants’ motions to dismiss (Docs. 10, 12, and 17) are due to be granted. (Doc. 23). Although
the court granted Plaintiff an extension of time for filing objections to the Magistrate Judge’s Report
(see Doc. 24 and unnumbered margin entry dated 7/11/12), that deadline has now passed and no
objections were filed.
Having carefully reviewed and considered de novo all the materials in the court file, the court
is of the opinion that the Magistrate Judge’s findings are due to be and are hereby ADOPTED and
his Recommendation is ACCEPTED. Accordingly, Defendants’ respective motions to dismiss
(Docs. 10, 12, and 17) are due to be granted. A separate final order will be entered.
DONE and ORDERED this
day of August, 2012.
