IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS HOT SPRINGS DIVISION AUSTIN HILL v. PLAINTIFF No. 6:15-CV-06040 SHERIFF DAVID NORWOOD, Ouachita County, Arkansas; and JAIL ADMINISTRATOR NATHAN GREELEY, Ouachita County Detention Center DEFENDANTS ORDER The Court has received a report and recommendation (Doc. 28) from United States Magistrate Judge Mark E. Ford. No objections have been filed and the deadline to file objections has passed. The Magistrate recommends that the Court grant Defendants’ motion for summary judgment (Doc. 21).

After careful review, the Court finds that the report and recommendation (Doc. 28) is proper, contains no clear error, and should be, and hereby is, ADOPTED IN ITS ENTIRETY. IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Defendants’ motion for summary judgment (Doc. 21) is GRANTED, and this case is DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE. Judgment will be entered separately. IT IS SO ORDERED this 8th day of February, 2017. /s/P. K. Holmes, III P.K. HOLMES, III CHIEF U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE
