Order approving and adopting 12 Proposed Findings and Recommendations in their entirety as this Court's findings in all respects and granting defendant Dr. Brett Butler's 6 motion to dismiss.

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
TONY A. HICKMAN
Case No. 2:14-cv-00131 KGB/PSH
BRETT BUTLER, et al.
(“Recommendations”) submitted by United States Magistrate Judge H. David Young (Dkt. No.
12) and the timely objections filed by plaintiff Tony Hickman (Dkt. No. 14). After careful
consideration of the Recommendations and Mr. Hickman’s objections, as well as a de novo
review of the record, the Court approves and adopts the Recommendations in their entirety as
this Court’s findings in all respects.
Therefore, the Court grants defendant Dr. Brett Butler’s
motion to dismiss and dismisses with prejudice Mr. Hickman’s claims against Dr. Butler.
At the time the Recommendations were submitted, the second defendant now identified
as Jennifer Petty had not been served with Mr. Hickman’s complaint. Ms. Petty has now been
served, and she has filed an answer (Dkt. Nos. 17, 19). Because the Recommendations did not
directly address arguments advanced by Ms. Petty, Mr. Hickman’s claims against Ms. Petty
SO ORDERED this 12th day of August, 2015.
Kristine G. Baker
United States District Judge
