FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
CHRISTIAN HILL, et al.,
Case No. 2:14-cv-00426-WMA-HGD
MEMORANDUM OF OPINION
The magistrate judge filed a report and recommendation on March 21, 2016,
recommending that defendant Hart’s motion for summary judgment (doc. 24) be
granted and that the plaintiff’s claims against defendant Hart be dismissed with
prejudice. The magistrate judge further recommended that the plaintiff’s claims
against defendant Hill be dismissed without prejudice for want of prosecution. The
parties were allowed fourteen (14) days to file objections and advised that the failure
to file such objections would bar any later challenge or review of the factual findings
of the magistrate judge. No objections have been received by the court.
Having carefully reviewed and considered de novo all the materials in the court
file, including the report and recommendation, the court is of the opinion that the
