Case No. 15-cv-11414
Hon. Matthew F. Leitman
DANIEL HEYNS et. al.
ORDER (1) TREATING PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR
RECONSIDERATION (ECF #53) AS OBJECTIONS TO THE
MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION (ECF #52)
(2) AND REQUIRING DEFENDANTS TO FILE A RESPONSE TO
Plaintiff Ricky Bills (“Bills”) is a Michigan state prisoner. In this action, he
alleges that, among other things, Defendants misappropriated or misapplied funds
that were deposited into his prison bank account. (See Amended Complaint, ECF
#18.) Defendants moved to dismiss Bills’ Amended Complaint (see ECF ## 28,
32, 41), and the assigned Magistrate Judge recommended that the Court grant
Defendants’ motions in a Report and Recommendation dated January 4, 2017. (the
“R&R”). (See ECF #52.) At the conclusion of the R&R, the Magistrate Judge
informed the parties that if they wanted to seek review of his recommendation,
they needed to file specific objections with the Court within fourteen days. (See id.
at 16-17, Pg. ID 497-98.)
On January 24, 2017, Bills filed a document with the Court that he titled a
“Motion for Reconsideration.” (See ECF #52.) Because Bills’ motion appears
directed to and contains a number of objections of the R&R, the Court will treat
the motion as Bills’ objections to the R&R.
The Court further orders the
Defendants to respond Bills’ objections to the R&R by no later than February 17,
IT IS SO ORDERED.
