UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
Case No. 2:16-cv-01878-APG-GWF
ORDER ACCEPTING REPORT AND
(ECF No. 3)
On October 17, 2017, Magistrate Judge Foley recommended I dismiss with prejudice
plaintiff Robert Jackson’s claims against the John Doe U.S. Attorney defendant because that
defendant would be entitled to prosecutorial immunity. ECF No. 3. Magistrate Judge Foley also
recommended I dismiss without prejudice Jackson’s claims against defendant Diego Grimaldo
because it was unclear from the complaint whether Jackson’s claims were barred under Heck v.
Humphrey, 512 U.S. 477, 480 (1994). Id. Jackson filed a response in which he disputed some of
the Magistrate Judge’s ruling, but Jackson nevertheless requests to voluntarily dismiss his claims
without prejudice. ECF No. 4.
I conducted a de novo review. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). Judge Foley sets forth the proper
legal analysis and factual basis for the decision.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Magistrate Judge Foley’s report and
recommendation (ECF No. 3) is accepted. Plaintiff Robert Jackson’s claims against defendant
John Doe U.S. Attorney are dismissed with prejudice. Jackson’s claims against defendant Diego
Grimaldo are dismissed without prejudice. The clerk of court is instructed to close this case.
DATED this 29th day of November, 2017.
ANDREW P. GORDON
