U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
PREA COORDINATOR, et al.,
Case No. 5:17-cv-00053-MHH-TMP
On April 4, 2017, the magistrate judge entered a report in which he
recommended that the Court dismiss without prejudice plaintiff Brent Jacoby’s
claims against defendants Loggins, Surrett, Mercado, and PREA Coordinator John
Doe pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915A(b) for failing to state a claim upon which relief
can be granted. (Doc. 12, p. 28). The magistrate judge also recommended that the
Court dismiss without prejudice pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915A(b) Mr. Jacoby’s
claims against defendant Gordy, except for the failure to protect claim. (Id.).
Although the magistrate judge advised Mr. Jacoby of his right to file specific
written objections within fourteen (14) days, Mr. Jacoby has not filed objections to
the report and recommendation.1
On April 27, 2017, the Court received from Mr. Jacoby a notice of change of address. (Doc.
13). Therefore, the magistrate judge asked the Clerk to send the report and recommendation to
Mr. Jacoby at his new address. (Doc. 14). The April 28, 2017 order allowed Mr. Jacoby an
additional fourteen days to file objections. (Doc. 14, pp. 1-2).
A district court “may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or part, the findings
or recommendations made by the magistrate judge.” 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C). A
district court reviews legal conclusions in a report de novo and reviews for plain
error factual findings to which no objection is made. Garvey v. Vaughn, 993 F.2d
776, 779 n.9 (11th Cir. 1993); see also LoConte v. Dugger, 847 F.2d 745, 749
(11th Cir. 1988); Macort v. Prem, Inc., 208 Fed. Appx. 781, 784 (11th Cir. 2006).2
The Court finds no misstatements of law in the report and no plain error in
the magistrate judge’s description of the relevant facts.
Therefore, the Court
adopts the magistrate judge’s report and accepts his recommendation. The Court
dismisses without prejudice pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915A(b) all of Mr. Jacoby’s
claims except for the failure to protect claim against defendant Gordy.
The Court recommits this action to the magistrate judge for further
proceedings regarding Mr. Jacoby’s failure to protect claim against defendant
DONE and ORDERED this July 11, 2017.

UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
When a party objects to a report in which a magistrate judge recommends dismissal of a claim,
a district court must “make a de novo determination of those portions of the report or specified
proposed findings or recommendations to which objection is made.” 28 U.S.C. §§ 636(b)(1)(B)(C).
