Davis v. LeBlanc et al

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF LOUISIANA
ROBERT JACIAN DAVIS
SEC. JAMES LEBLANC ET AL.
The Court, having considered the complaint, the record, the applicable law, the
Report and Recommendation of the United States Magistrate Judge, and the plaintiff’s
objections to the Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation, hereby approves the
Report and Recommendation of the United States Magistrate Judge and adopts it as its
opinion in this matter.
The Court notes Plaintiff’s request to amend his Complaint to dismiss his claims of
racial discrimination and loss of good time, while retaining his claims regarding inadequate
medical care and access to the law library. The magistrate judge, however, conducted a
Spears hearing in which Plaintiff was allowed to further explain his claims in the nature of
an amended complaint. See Adams v. Hansen, 906 F.2d 192, 194 (5th Cir. 1990) (“Spears
hearing is . . . in the nature of an amended complaint or a more definite statement.”). The
magistrate judge then adequately addressed Plaintiff’s claims relating to medical care (See
Doc. 38, p.26) and access to the law library (See Doc. 38, p.38). Accordingly, further
amendment would be futile, and this Court adopts the magistrate’s reasoning as its own.
IT IS ORDERED that (1) plaintiff’s motions for injunctive relief or temporary
restraining order, Record Doc. Nos. 5, 16, 26 and 28, are DENIED, and (2) plaintiff’s
complaint is hereby DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE as legally frivolous and/or for
failure to state a claim under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2) and 42 U.S.C. § 1997e(c)(1).
New Orleans, Louisiana, this 13th day of March 2017.
