Hill v. Hollenbeck et al
ORDER ADOPTING 78 REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS AS AMENDED, Plaintiff's claims against Defendant Rebecca Bennett are DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE. Signed by Honorable P. K. Holmes, III on October 20, 2017. (hnc)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
FORT SMITH DIVISION
SHERIFF BILL HOLLENBECK, et al.
The Court has received a report and recommendation (Doc. 78) from United States
Magistrate Judge Mark E. Ford. No objections have been filed and the deadline to file objections
The Magistrate recommends that the Court dismiss Plaintiff’s claims against
Defendant Rebecca Bennett without prejudice. The Court has conducted careful review of this
case, and notes that the caption on the report and recommendation incorrectly identifies Plaintiff.
This is clearly just a scrivener’s error. The Court received a separate report and recommendation
from the same Magistrate on the same date the report and recommendation in this case was filed.
See Ernest Lynn Roberts v. Supervisor Cindy Moore, No. 2:16-CV-02017, Doc. 49 (Oct. 2, 2017).
The report and recommendation in Mr. Roberts’s case recommended a similar disposition for
nearly identical circumstances, and apparently provided the framework for the Magistrate in
drafting the report and recommendation in the instant case. Transposing Mr. Roberts’s name for
Mr. Hill’s name in the caption of the report and recommendation in this case has no substantive
effect on the outcome. With this correction noted, the report and recommendation is otherwise
proper, contains no clear error, and is ADOPTED AS AMENDED.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Plaintiff’s claims against Defendant Rebecca Bennett
are DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 20th day of October, 2017.
