UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
DENNIS J. STEWART
Case No. 1:21-cv-124
Judge Timothy S. Black
Magistrate Judge Stephanie K.
DECISION AND ENTRY
ADOPTING THE REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS
OF THE UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE (Doc. 6)
This case is before the Court pursuant to the Order of General Reference to United
States Magistrate Judge Stephanie K. Bowman. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b). Pursuant to such
reference, the Magistrate Judge reviewed the pleadings filed with this Court and, on April
26, 2021, submitted a Report and Recommendations. (Doc. 6). No objections were filed
to the Report and Recommendations, and the time for filing objections has expired. 1
The Court has reviewed the Report and Recommendations, is satisfied that there is
nothing clearly erroneous or contrary to law on the face of the record, and accepts the
Magistrate Judge’s recommendations. Fed. R. Civ. P. 72.
In a filing postmarked May 26, 2021, sixteen days after the deadline for filing objections,
Plaintiff filed a letter which purports to: (1) ask for legal counsel, which request the Magistrate
Judge already denied; and (2) seek additional time “to figure out [his] next approach.” (Doc. 8).
As discussed in the Report, Plaintiff’s complaint against “Lebanon Correctional Medical Staff”
fails to state an actionable claim against the Lebanon Correctional Medical Staff, the only named
defendant in the complaint. Accordingly, Plaintiff’s motion for extension of time (Doc. 8) is not
well taken and denied.
Case: 1:21-cv-00124-TSB-SKB Doc #: 10 Filed: 09/08/21 Page: 2 of 2 PAGEID #: 33
The Report and Recommendations (Doc. 6) is ADOPTED.
Plaintiff’s complaint is DISMISSED with prejudice pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
§ 1915(e)(2)(B) and 1915A(b)(1).
The Court CERTIFIES that pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3), an appeal
of this Court’s Order would not be taken in good faith and DENIES
Plaintiff leave to appeal in forma pauperis. See McGore v. Wrigglesworth,
114 F.3d 601 (6th Cir. 199).
The Clerk shall enter judgment accordingly, whereupon this action is
TERMINATED upon the docket of this Court.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
