PRESENT: THE HONORABLE PATRICK J. DUGGAN U.S. DISTRICT COURT JUDGE Plaintiff, an inmate currently incarcerated in Macomb County Jail, initiated this lawsuit on November 5, 2007, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 1983 alleging numerous violations of his constitutional rights. On March 21, 2008, Defendants filed a motion for summary judgment which this Court referred to Magistrate Judge Virginia M. Morgan. On January 13, 2009, Magistrate Judge Morgan filed her Report and Recommendation (R&R) recommending that this Court grant Defendants' motion for summary judgment. At the conclusion of the R&R, Magistrate Judge Morgan advises the parties that they may object to and seek review of the R&R within ten days of service upon them. (R&R at 18.) She further specifically advises the parties that "[f]ailure to file specific objections constitutes a waiver of any further right of appeal." ( Id.) Neither party filed objections to the R&R. The Court has carefully reviewed the R&R and concurs with the conclusions reached by Magistrate Judge Morgan. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that Defendants' motion for summary judgment is GRANTED. A judgment consistent with this opinion shall issue. s/PATRICK J. DUGGAN UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE Copies to: Kenneth Alexander #269879 35 Adams Street Pontiac, MI 48342 Kenneth L. Lewis, Esq. 2
