Blaskowski v. Minnesota, State of et al
ORDER APPROVING AND ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION 7 ; denying objection 10 ; certifying that an appeal of the decision would not be taken in good faith; Judgment to issue; signed by Judge Janet T. Neff (Judge Janet T. Neff, rmw)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
Case No. 1:15-cv-422
HON. JANET T. NEFF
MINNESOTA, STATE OF, et al.,
Plaintiff filed this pro se lawsuit against the state of Minnesota and additional parties. The
Magistrate Judge issued a Report and Recommendation (Dkt 7), recommending that Plaintiff’s
complaint be dismissed with prejudice because it failed to allege any “facts,” which even if accepted
as true, state a claim upon which relief may be granted (id. at Page ID# 29). Plaintiff has refiled a
portion of the Report and Recommendation noting an “objection” on this matter (Dkt 10), but he
raises no substantive objection to the Magistrate Judge’s determination.
In accordance with 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and FED. R. CIV. P. 72(b)(3), the Court denies the
objection and adopts the Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation as the Opinion of this
Court. A Judgment will be entered consistent with this Order. See FED. R. CIV. P. 58.
Because this action was filed in forma pauperis, this Court certifies, pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
§ 1915(a)(3), that an appeal of this decision would not be taken in good faith. See McGore v.
Wrigglesworth, 114 F.3d 601, 610 (6th Cir. 1997), overruled on other grounds by Jones v. Bock, 549
U.S. 199, 206, 211-12 (2007).
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Objection (Dkt 10) is DENIED and the Report and
Recommendation (Dkt 7) is APPROVED and ADOPTED as the Opinion of the Court.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Plaintiff’s complaint is DISMISSED for failure to state
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Court certifies pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a) that
an appeal of the decision would not be taken in good faith.
