IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
ABRAHAM GRANT, SR.
JENNIFER McBRIDE, et al.
The Court has considered Magistrate Judge Beth Deere's recommended
disposition, Document No. 41, and Grant's objections, Document No. 45. On de
novo review, the Court adopts Judge Deere's proposal as its decision. FED. R.
CIV. P. 72(b)(3). Grant's objections do not create an issue of fact as to whether
he followed ADC policy in appealing his grievance. Document No. 30-1, at 2,
5, & 8. Absent a decision on the merits to cure his filing defect, he has failed
to exhaust his administrative remedies. Hammett v. Cofield, 681 F.3d 945,947
(8th Cir. 2012). Motions for summary judgment, Document Nos. 24 & 39, are
granted. Grant's complaint, Document No. 2, is dismissed without prejudice.
Other pending motions, Document Nos. 17 & 34, denied as moot.
