LUDY v. NELSON et al

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
MITCHELL LAVERN LUDY,
CYNTHIA NELSON, et al.,
CIVIL ACTION NO. 5:13-CV-353 (MTT)
This matter is before the Court on the Recommendation of United States
Magistrate Judge Stephen Hyles. (Doc. 5). After screening the complaint pursuant to
28 U.S.C. § 1915A, the Magistrate Judge recommends allowing the Plaintiff’s RLUIPA
claims to go forward. However, the Magistrate Judge recommends dismissing the
Plaintiff’s request for an injunction because that claim became moot upon his transfer to
another facility. The Plaintiff filed an objection to the Recommendation. He claims he
has not been transferred and is still incarcerated in the same institution where the
alleged constitutional violations occurred.
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1), the Court has considered the Plaintiff’s
objections and has made a de novo determination of the portions of the
Recommendation to which the Plaintiff objects. It appears that the Plaintiff is correct,
and he has not been transferred to a different facility. The Court has reviewed the
Recommendation, and the Recommendation is adopted and made the order of this
Court except as to its finding that the Plaintiff’s claim for injunctive relief should be
dismissed. Accordingly, all of the Plaintiff’s claims shall proceed.
SO ORDERED, this the 1st day of October, 2013.
S/ Marc T. Treadwell
