IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
HOT SPRINGS DIVISION
SHERIFF DAVID NORWOOD, Ouachita
County, Arkansas; and JAIL ADMINISTRATOR
NATHAN GREELEY, Ouachita County
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). The Magistrate finds that Plaintiff failed to exhaust his administrative
remedies, and that even if he had done so, Defendants have provided evidence that Plaintiff was
not exposed to either tuberculosis or staphylococcus while in the Ouachita County Detention
Center and Plaintiff cannot show a genuine dispute of material fact on this issue. 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
IT IS SO ORDERED this 8th day of February, 2017.
