Pinder v. McDowell et al
ORDER ADOPTING 6 PARTIAL REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS. Plaintiff's 4 Motion for Preliminary Injunctive Relief is DENIED, without prejudice. Signed by Judge James M. Moody Jr. on 10/6/2014. (mcz)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
CASE NO. 5:14-CV-359 JM/BD
ALVA GREEN McDOWELL, et al.
The Court has received a Partial Recommended Disposition (“Recommendation”)
from Magistrate Judge Beth Deere. After careful review of the Recommendation, Mr.
Pinder’s timely objections, as well as a de novo review of the record, the Court concludes
that the Recommendation should be, and hereby is, approved and adopted as this Court’s
findings in all respects. Mr. Pinder states in his objections that he will suffer loss of vision and
pain if the Defendants continue to deny him his medication. However, Mr. Pinder’s “bare
allegations are not sufficient to establish the threat of irreparable harm.” Packard Elevator v.
I.C.C., 782 F.2d 112, 115(8th Cir. 1996). “A plaintiff seeking an injunction must show that
harm has occurred in the past and is likely to occur again or that harm is certain to occur in the
near future.” Id.
Mr. Pinder’s motion for preliminary injunctive relief (docket entry #4) is DENIED,
without prejudice, this 6th day of October, 2014.
