ORDER Adopting 11 Report and Recommendation for Dismissing Complaint. Signed by District Judge Sean F. Cox. (JMcC)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
Duane Letroy Berry,
Case No. 17-11154
Midland County Jail, et al.,
Sean F. Cox
United States District Court Judge
9/6/17 REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
Plaintiff, who is incarcerated at the Midland County Jail. Acting pro se, he filed this
action on April 10, 2017. The Court referred the matter for pretrial proceedings before
Magistrate Judge David Grand (Doc. # 9).
On September 6, 2017, Magistrate Judge Grand issued a Report and Recommendation
(“R&R”) (Doc. # 11) wherein he recommends that the Court dismiss Plaintiff’s complaint
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e).
The time for filing objections to the R&R has expired. Plaintiff has filed several
documents in the wake of the R&R including a document titled “Judicial Notice” that claims the
Court lacks subject matter jurisdiction (Doc. # 12), a petition for a Writ of Assistance (Doc. #
13-14), and a Motion for Contempt (Doc. # 15-16). These documents, even when liberally
construed, do not raise objections to the R&R and do not otherwise have merit.
The Court hereby ADOPTS the September 6, 2017 R&R and ORDERS that Plaintiff’s
complaint is DISMISSED pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e). The Court further ORDERS that
Plaintiff’s motions for Judicial Notice and Contempt and his petition for a Writ of Assistance are
IT IS SO ORDERED.
