UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN NORTHERN DIVISION TERRY M. HOWLEY, Plaintiff, v. FRED L. BORCHARD, Defendant. _______________________________________/ ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION, OVERRULING PLAINTIFF'S OBJECTION, AND DISMISSING PLAINTIFF'S COMPLAINT FOR LACK OF JURISDICTION This matter is before the Court on a report issued by Magistrate Judge Charles E. Binder on October 20, 2008. The magistrate judge recommends sua sponte dismissal of Plaintiff's complaint for lack of jurisdiction. On November 3, 2008, Plaintiff filed an objection. However, Plaintiff's objection does not address any specific portion of the magistrate judge's report and recommendation, nor does Plaintiff argue that this Court has jurisdiction over the matter. The Court agrees with the reasoning and conclusion of the magistrate judge. Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the magistrate judge's report and recommendation [Dkt # 6] is ADOPTED. It is further ORDERED that Plaintiff's objection [Dkt. # 7]is OVERRULED. It is further ORDERED that Plaintiff's complaint [Dkt. # 1] is DISMISSED for lack of jurisdiction. s/Thomas L.
