UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA FORT PIERCE DIVISION CASE NO. 20-14295-CIV-CANNON/Reid JOSEPH RANSBERGER, Plaintiff, v. OKEECHOBEE COUNTY, et al., Defendants. ______________________________/ ORDER ADOPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION THIS CAUSE is before the Court upon Plaintiff’s Amended Complaint filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 [ECF No. 13], filed on December 7, 2020. The Amended Complaint was previously referred to Magistrate Judge Lisette M. Reid for a Report and Recommendation (“R&R”) on all dispositive matters [ECF No. 14]. On February 3, 2021, the Magistrate Judge issued an R&R recommending that the Motion be denied [ECF No. 15]. The R&R states that the Plaintiff shall file any objections within fourteen days of the date of service of a copy of the R&R [ECF No. 15, p. 5]. To date, Plaintiff has filed no objections, nor has he sought additional time in which to do so. Nevertheless, the Court has conducted a de novo review of the R&R and the record in this case and is otherwise fully advised in the premises. See Williams v. McNeil, 557 F.3d 1287, 1291 (11th Cir. 2009) (citing 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)). Upon review, the Court finds the R&R to be well reasoned and correct. The Court therefore agrees with the analysis in the R&R and concludes that the Amended Complaint must be DISMISSED for the reasons set forth therein. CASE NO. 20-14295-CIV-CANNON/Reid Accordingly, it is ORDERED and ADJUDGED as follows: 1. The R&R [ECF No. 15] is ADOPTED; 2. The Amended Complaint [ECF No. 13] is DISMISSED; 3. All pending motions are DENIED AS MOOT; and 4. The Clerk shall CLOSE this case. DONE AND ORDERED in Fort Pierce, Florida this 31st day of March 2021. cc: _________________________________ AILEEN M.
