IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
SERVICES, INC., et al.,
Case No. 4:12-cv-01927-SLB-PWG
The Magistrate Judge filed a report and recommendation on January 13, 2014,
recommending that the defendants' motion for summary judgment be granted and this cause
be dismissed with prejudice. (Doc. # 22). The parties were given until January 28, 2014 to
file objections, and were advised that the failure to file such objections would bar any later
challenge or review of the factual findings or legal conclusions of the magistrate judge. No
objections have been filed by any party1.
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 magistrate
judge's report is due to be and is hereby ADOPTED and his recommendation is
It should be noted that on February 24, 2014, well after the time for filing objections
had elapsed, but prior to the entry of the final judgment in this case, the plaintiff filed what he
entitled a notice of appeal. (Doc. 23). The plaintiff stated that an “appeal may be made from a
final judgment of a district Judge, and the Plaintiff has (42) days for such appeal.” Id. This
pleading shall not be construed as an objection, but shall rather be deemed a notice of appeal
seeking to challenge the judgment being entered today, in spite of its premature filing.
ACCEPTED. The court EXPRESSLY FINDS that there are no genuine issues of material
fact and that the defendants are entitled to judgment as a matter of law.
Accordingly, defendants' motion for summary judgment is due to be GRANTED and
this action is due to be DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE. A Final Judgment will be
DONE this the 20th day of March, 2014.
