ADAM WHITEHEAD, et al.,
Case No. 5:15-cv-00240-VEH-SGC
The magistrate judge filed a report on July 13, 2016, recommending the
defendant’s motion for summary judgment be granted and this action dismissed
with prejudice. (Doc. 38). The plaintiff filed generalized objections to the report
and recommendation on July 22, 2016, but failed to identify the specific findings

magistrate judge’s conclusion that he has failed to demonstrate a genuine issue of
fact with regard to a critical element of his Eighth Amendment claim.
Accordingly, having carefully reviewed and considered de novo all the
materials in the court file, including the report and recommendation and the

concludes that the defendants’ motion for summary judgment is due to be
A Final Judgment will be issued contemporaneously herewith.
DONE and ORDERED this August 16, 2016.
