IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI
TIMOTHY MORRIS, ET AL.
Having considered the file and records in this action, the court finds that the Report and
Recommendation of the United States Magistrate Judge was duly served by mail upon the pro se
plaintiff at his last known address; that more than fourteen days have elapsed since service of the
Report and Recommendation; and that no objection to the Report and Recommendation has been
filed or served by any party. The magistrate judge’s Report and Recommendation should
therefore be approved and adopted as the opinion of the court. It is ordered:
That the Report and Recommendation of the United States Magistrate Judge is
hereby APPROVED AND ADOPTED as the opinion of the court.
That Superintendent Earnest Lee is DISMISSED with prejudice from this case for
failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted.
The plaintiff’s claims against defendants Warden Timothy Morris and Johnnie
Denmark for failure to protect will PROCEED.
Likewise, McGilberry’s claims against the as-yet-unnamed guards for failure to
provide timely medical attention will PROCEED.
SO ORDERED, this, the 31st day of March, 2017.
