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.)

(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.

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, 2017. IT IS SO ORDERED. s/Matthew F. Leitman MATTHEW F.
