Ybarra v. Arkansas Department of Correction et al
ORDER approving and adopting 10 Partial Recommended Disposition; denying 12 Plaintiff's Motion to Amend Complaint; dismissing with prejudice Ms. Ybarra's due process claim against Defendant Dixon; and, dismissing without prejudice Ms. Ybarra's state law tort claims of assault and battery against Defendant Dixon. Signed by Judge James M. Moody on 8/16/2011. (dmn)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
ADC # 710487
CASE NO. 1:11CV00057 JMM/BD
OF CORRECTION, et al.
The Court has received the Partial Recommended Disposition from Magistrate
Judge Beth Deere. After careful review of the recommendation, the timely objections
received thereto1, as well as a de novo review of the record, the Court concludes that the
Partial Recommended Disposition should be, and hereby is, approved and adopted as this
Court’s findings in all respects.
Ms. Ybarra’s due process claim against Defendant Dixon is DISMISSED with
prejudice and her state law tort claims of assault and battery against Defendant Dixon are
DISMISSED without prejudice. Her claims against the Arkansas Department of
Correction are DISMISSED with prejudice. Further, Plaintiff’s Motion to Amend her
Complaint (Docket # 12) is DENIED because it is futile. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 15(a);
Becker v. Univ. Of Neb. at Omaha, 191 F.3d 904, 907-08 (8th Cir. 1999).
The Court has considered Plaintiff’s Motion to Amend her Complaint as an objection
to the Partial Recommended Disposition because Plaintiff attempts to include a due process
claim against Defendants Hoot and Dixon in the Amended Complaint.
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 16th day of August , 2011.
