DECISION and ORDER
Pro se plaintiff Donald Michel brought this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C.
§ 1983. On January 17, 2017, the Honorable Andrew T. Baxter, United States Magistrate
Judge, advised by Report-Recommendation that defendants' motion for summary judgment
be granted as to plaintiff's First Amendment claim, and that plaintiff's Equal Protection claim
also be dismissed, without prejudice, sua sponte. Plaintiff filed untimely objections to the
Report-Recommendation, despite having been given multiple extensions of time in which to
do so. Though untimely, plaintiff's objections have been reviewed.
Based upon a de novo review of the portions of the Report-Recommendation to which
plaintiff objected, the Report-Recommendation is accepted and adopted in all respects. See
28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1).
Therefore, it is
1. Defendants' motion for summary judgment is GRANTED;
2. Plaintiff's First Amendment claim is DISMISSED;
3. Plaintiff's Equal Protection claim is DISMISSED without prejudice;
4. Plaintiff has twenty (20) days in which to file an amended complaint asserting an
Equal Protection claim which cures the deficiencies identified in the ReportRecommendation; and
5. The Clerk is directed to serve a copy of this Decision and Order upon plaintiff in
accordance with the Local Rules.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
