IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF OKLAHOMA
THURMAN HARVEY HINES,
JOE ALLBAUGH, et. al.,
Case No. CIV-17-642-R
Before the Court is Plaintiff’s timely objection (Doc. No. 47) to the Report and
Recommendation of Magistrate Judge Shon T. Erwin (Doc. No. 46), wherein Judge Erwin
recommends the Court deny Plaintiff’s Motion for Temporary Restraining Order (Doc. No.

the Report and Recommendation is in error. Accordingly, Plaintiff’s Motion for Temporary
Restraining Order (Doc. No. 23) is hereby DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 7th day of February 2018.
