Hall v. Cooper et al
ORDER Accepting Report & Recommendation Dated June 21, 2017 (Dkt. 21 ) and Dismissing Plaintiff's Complaint (Dkt. 1 ). Signed by District Judge Mark A. Goldsmith. (Sandusky, K)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
BRUCE J. HALL,
Case No. 16-cv-12610
Hon. Mark A. Goldsmith
AL COOPER and BELINDA
ORDER ACCEPTING REPORT & RECOMMENDATION DATED JUNE 21, 2017
(Dkt. 21) AND DISMISSING PLAINTIFF’S COMPLAINT (Dkt. 1)
This matter is presently before the Court on the Report and Recommendation (“R&R”) of
Magistrate Judge R. Steven Whalen, issued on June 21, 2017 (Dkt. 21). In the R&R, the magistrate
judge recommends that Plaintiff’s complaint be dismissed on the basis that the allegations in the
complaint are “attenuated, unsubstantial, frivolous, and devoid of merit.” See R&R at 1 (quoting
Apple v. Glenn, 183 F.3d 477, 479 (6th Cir. 1999)). Specifically, he found that the allegations
were conclusory and did not plausibly establish a violation of any federal right.
The parties have not filed objections to the R&R, and the time to do so has expired. See
Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(2). The Court has reviewed the R&R and concludes that the magistrate judge
reached the proper conclusion for the proper reasons. Therefore, the R&R is accepted and adopted
as the findings and conclusions of the Court. Plaintiff’s complaint is dismissed without prejudice.
