ORDER ACCEPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION  AND DENYING
PLAINTIFF’S MOTION TO AMEND 
Timothy Robinson (“Plaintiff”), an incarcerated person, filed this action on
October 14, 2016. Dkt. No. 1. Plaintiff’s original Complaint alleges at least five
claims against at least eleven different defendants. Id. On January 17, 2017,
Defendants filed a Motion to Sever based on misjoinder of parties and claims. Dkt.
No. 22. The Plaintiff did not respond to that motion. On March 15, 2017, this Court
granted Defendants’ Motion to Sever and held that, “[t]he portion of this claim that
remains is the first claim alleged in the Complaint, that the St. Louis Correctional
Facility Mailroom Staff unlawfully opened Plaintiff’s legal mail.” Dkt. No. 25.
On February 28, 2017, Plaintiff moved to amend his complaint. The matter
was referred to Magistrate Judge Patricia T. Morris. On March 23, 2017, Magistrate
Judge Morris issued a Report and Recommendation urging the Court to deny
Plaintiff’s Motion to Amend. Dkt. No. 26. Neither party filed an objection to
Magistrate Judge Morris’ Report and Recommendation. The time for filing
objections has expired. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C). Upon review of the Magistrate
Judge’s Report and Recommendation, the Court concludes that the Magistrate Judge
reached the correct conclusion.
Therefore, the Court hereby ACCEPTS and ADOPTS Magistrate Judge
Morris’ March 23, 2017 Report and Recommendation  as this Court’s findings
of fact and conclusions of law. Plaintiff’s Motion to Amend  is HEREBY
DENIED. Magistrate Judge Morris has issued a scheduling order for Plaintiff’s
claims against the St. Louis Correctional Facility Mailroom Staff. Insofar as Plaintiff
still wishes to raise claims beyond those relating to the St. Louis Correctional
Facility Mailroom Staff, he must do so in a separately filed complaint.
