MAGISTRATE JUDGE HAYES
Before the Court is the Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge. See
Record Document 11. Pro se plaintiff Roy A. Williams (“Williams”) filed objections to the
Report and Recommendation and also filed a Motion for Leave to File Amended Civil
Rights Complaint. See Record Documents 15 & 16. The Court holds that the objections
are without merit and that the Motion for Leave to File Amended Civil Rights Complaint
should be DENIED, as the proposed amendment is futile.
Accordingly, for the reasons assigned in the Report and Recommendation of the
Magistrate Judge previously filed herein, and having thoroughly reviewed the record,
including the written objections (Record Document 15) filed, and concurring with the
findings of the Magistrate Judge under the applicable law;
IT IS ORDERED that the Motion for Leave to File Amended Civil Rights Complaint
(Record Document 16) be and is hereby DENIED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Williams’ complaint be and is hereby DISMISSED
WITH PREJUDICE as frivolous, for failing to state a claim on which relief may be granted,
and for seeking monetary damages against a defendant who is immune from such relief
pursuant to pursuant to the provisions of 28 U.S.C.§ 1915.
