Currently before the Court is the Report and Recommendations (Doc. 13) filed in this case
on October 7, 2011, by the Honorable James R. Marschewski, United States Magistrate for the
Western District of Arkansas. Also before the Court are Plaintiff’s Objections (Doc. 17) to the
Report and Recommendations.
The Court has reviewed this case and, being well and sufficiently advised, finds as follows:
Plaintiff’s objections offer neither law nor fact requiring departure from the Report and
Recommendation. In fact, Plaintiff states that he “does not object to the dismissal against inmate
Jeramy Mimmis as he was an inmate and not acting under color of state law.” (Doc. 17, p. 1).
The Court finds that the Report and Recommendation is proper and should be and hereby is
ADOPTED IN ITS ENTIRETY. Accordingly, for the reasons stated herein and in the Magistrate
Judge’s Report and Recommendations, Plaintiff’s claims against Separate Defendant Jeramy
Mimmis are DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE on the grounds that the claims are frivolous and fail
to state claims upon which relief may be granted.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 20th day of October, 2011.
