Coleman v. Johnson et al
MEMORANDUM OPINION. Signed by Judge Abdul K Kallon on 5/31/2016. (AVC)
2016 May-31 AM 11:07
U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
JOHNSON, et al.,
Civil Action Number
On May 2, 2016, the magistrate judge entered a report and recommendation,
doc. 12, recommending dismissal of Carl Coleman’s complaint as permitted under
the Prison Litigation Reform Act, 28 U.S.C. § 1915A, which permits the court to
dismiss sua sponte a prisoner’s complaint prior to service. Coleman was allowed
fourteen (14) days in which to file objections to the recommendation. That
fourteen-day period has passed, and Coleman has not filed an objection to the
magistrate judge’s recommendation.
Having reviewed the pleadings, the briefs, the magistrate’s report, and the
recommendation, the court hereby ADOPTS the recommendation of the
magistrate judge. Accordingly, because the court lacks subject matter jurisdiction

over Coleman’s claims, this case is DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE for
refiling in the appropriate state forum.
DONE the 31st day of May, 2016.
ABDUL K. KALLON
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
