IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
BRIAN T. JORDAN
Civil No. 11-5172
SGT. BRANDON CARMEAN; DEPUTY
MICHAEL NIEL; INVESTIGATOR JEREMY D.
FELTON; INVESTIGATOR KENNETH PAUL;
and PROSECUTING ATTORNEY
consideration the Report and Recommendation (R&R) of the Magistrate
Judge (document #15), filed on October 19, 2011, and the objections
to the Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge (document
#20), filed on November 2, 2011.
The Court, being well and
sufficiently advised, finds and orders as follows with respect
The plaintiff filed this civil rights action under the
provisions of 42 U.S.C. § 1983 in forma pauperis.
Pursuant to 28
U.S.C. § 1915(e), the Court has the obligation to screen any
complaint filed in forma pauperis.
In his R&R filed October 19, 2011 (document #15), U.S.
Magistrate Judge James R. Marschewski, recommends that several of
plaintiff’s claims be dismissed.
Particularly, the R&R recommends
Stephanie McLenore be dismissed because the prosecuting attorney is
immune from suit;
* that plaintiff’s claims that he was falsely charged with
witness tampering be dismissed; and,
contending that both Stephanie McLenore and investigator Kenneth D.
Paul knew the charges of witness bribery were false.
After a review of the matter, the Court finds that
plaintiff’s objections offer nothing either in law or fact which
would warrant rejection of the R&R. The objections of the plaintiff
(document #20) will, therefore, be overruled and the R&R will be
adopted in toto.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED
* that the objections of the plaintiff (document #20) to the
Report And Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge should be, and
they hereby are, overruled; and
* that the said Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate
Judge should be, and it hereby is, adopted in toto.
* plaintiff’s false arrest claims;
* plaintiff’s malicious prosecution claims;
* plaintiff’s claims against Prosecuting Attorney Stephanie
* plaintiff’s claims against Investigator Kenneth Paul.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
