IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
MATTHEW W. BARNETT
CASE NO. 1:16-CV-00156 BSM
WENDY KELLEY, et al.
The partial recommended disposition (“PRD”) submitted by United States Magistrate
Judge Beth Deere [Doc. No. 6] recommended dismissing plaintiff Matthew Barnett’s 42
U.S.C. § 1983 claim against the Grimes Correctional Unit. Barnett’s objections do not
challenge this recommended dismissal, but instead focus on whether he alleged a proper
Americans with Disabilities Act claim against the unit. After reviewing the record, the PRD
is adopted, and Barnett’s section 1983 claim against the unit is dismissed with prejudice.
The matter is returned to the magistrate judge to assess whether Barnett’s claim
against the unit under the Americans with Disabilities Act survives screening and whether
service is appropriate.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 28th day of November 2016.
