Scruggs v. Miller et al
ORDER ADOPTING 169 Report and Recommendations of the Magistrate Judge, and DENYING 157 Scruggs' Emergency MOTION for Preliminary Injunctions and 163 Scruggs' Emergency MOTION for Preliminary Injunctions by Plaintiff Christopher L Scruggs. Signed by Judge Jon E DeGuilio on 7/5/2017. (Copy mailed to pro se party)(lhc)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF INDIANA
SOUTH BEND DIVISION
CHRISTOPHER L. SCRUGGS,
STG. MILLER, et al.,
Cause No. 3:16-CV-050 JD
The Court referred the plaintiff’s motion for preliminary injunction to Magistrate Judge
Michael G. Gotsch. On June 2, 2017, he issued a report and recommendation, in which he
recommended that the motion be denied. ECF 169. The parties were informed that they had
fourteen days after being served with a copy of the report and recommendation to file any
written objections. More than fourteen days have passed and no party filed any objection. Willis
v. Caterpillar, Inc., 199 F.3d 902, 904 (7th Cir. 1999)(explaining that the failure to file a timely
objection will result in the waiver of the right to challenge a report and recommendation).
For these reasons, the court ADOPTS the report and recommendation (ECF 169) of the
magistrate judge, and DENIES the motions1 for preliminary injunction (ECF 157, 163).

United States District Court
After Scruggs’ motion was referred to the magistrate judge, he filed a second, identical motion for
preliminary injunction. Scruggs’ second motion is denied for the same reasons that Magistrate Judge Gotsch
identified in his report and recommendation.
