WATSON v. PROSPERS et al
ORDER adopting 26 Report and Recommendations; granting 18 Motion for Summary Judgment. Party STEELE terminated. Ordered by US DISTRICT JUDGE TILMAN E. SELF, III on 10/8/2019. (tlw)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
MATTHEW DARYL WATSON,
CIVIL ACTION NO.
Lt. PROSPERS, et al.,
ORDER ADOPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
Defendant Steele, the only remaining defendant in this case, has moved for
summary judgment on Plaintiff Matthew Daryl Watson’s Eighth Amendment excessive
force claim, arguing that the claim falls outside the applicable two-year statute of
limitations. See generally [Doc. 18]. The United States Magistrate Judge reviewed the
motion and Plaintiff’s response and recommends that the Court grant the motion. See
generally [Doc. 26]. The parties filed no objections to the recommendation, and the Court
therefore reviews the recommendation solely for clear error. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); see
also Macort v. Prem, Inc., 208 F. App’x 781, 784 (11th Cir. 2006) (“[I]n the absence of a timely
filed objection, a district court . . . must only satisfy itself that there is no clear error on the
face of the record in order to accept the [magistrate judge’s] recommendation.”).
Having performed the requisite review of the findings, the Court ADOPTS the
Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation [Doc. 26] and MAKES IT THE ORDER
OF THE COURT. Accordingly, Defendant Steele’s Motion for Summary Judgment [Doc.
18] is GRANTED, and Plaintiff’s claim against Defendant Steele is DISMISSED.
SO ORDERED, this 8th day of October, 2019.
