UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN SOUTHERN DIVISION MORRIS WEATHERSPOON, Plaintiff, Case No. 14-cv-12789 Hon. Matthew F. Leitman v. GEORGE LNU, et al., Defendants. _________________________________/ ORDER STRIKING PLAINTIFF’S OBJECTIONS TO THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION (ECF #130) AND REQUIRING PLAINTIFF TO RESUBMIT OBJECTIONS IN A LEGIBLE FORMAT On July 19, 2016, the assigned Magistrate Judge issued a Report and Recommendation (the “R&R”) recommending that the Court grant summary judgment in favor of Defendants Susan George and Tamara Scheppelman. (See ECF #127.) On August 29, 2016, Plaintiff Morris Weatherspoon (“Weatherspoon”) filed handwritten objections to the R&R (the “Objections”). (See ECF #130.) After expending considerable effort, the Court concludes that it cannot adequately decipher Weatherspoon’s handwriting in the Objections because they are not legible. To enable the Court to review the Objections, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that by no later than November 28, 2016, Weatherspoon resubmit his Objections in a format that is legible to the Court. Specifically, Weatherspoon is ordered to: (1) Write the objections on every other line of his paper (i.e., he must leave a blank line in between the lines of text that he writes); (2) Use both uppercase and lowercase letters (i.e., he must not use all capital letters); and (3) Avoid writing within one inch of the top or bottom of each page. The Court further directs the Clerk of the Court to strike Weatherspoon’s current objections (ECF #130) from the record. s/Matthew F. Leitman MATTHEW F. LEITMAN UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE Dated: October 12, 2016 I hereby certify that a copy of the foregoing document was served upon the parties and/or counsel of record on October 12, 2016, by electronic means and/or ordinary mail. s/Holly A. Monda Case Manager (313) 234-5113
