IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
JIHAAD AMORE HARRISION,
SECRETARY GEORGE LITTLE,
C.A. No. 22-105 Erie
District Judge Susan Paradise Baxter
Magistrate Judge Richard A. Lanzillo
This action was commenced by Plaintiff’s filing of a pro se civil rights complaint
accompanied by a motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis (“ifp motion”) [ECF No. 1], on
March 28, 2022. This matter was referred to United States Magistrate Judge Richard A. Lanzillo,
for report and recommendation in accordance with the Magistrates Act, 28 U.S.C. §636(b)(1),
and Rules 72.1.3 and 72.1.4 of the Local Rules for Magistrates.
On November 25, 2022, Plaintiff filed a one-page motion for injunctive relief alleging
that she1 sent a request slip to Defendants asking, “What would you give me if I help you defeat
Leonard Young QA-0396 in Civil Action No. 1:22-cv-00327 RAL, you help me, I help you,”
and that Defendants forwarded a copy of her request slip to Inmate Young, who then allegedly
placed “a $25,000 hit on [Plaintiff’s] head.” [ECF No. 51]. As a result, Plaintiff seeks an
immediate transfer to either SCI-Benner or SCI-Mercer for her safety.
On December 2, 2022, Judge Lanzillo issued a Report and Recommendation (“R&R”)
According to the R&R, Plaintiff identifies as a female and refers to herself by the pronouns “she/her/hers.”
Case 1:22-cv-00105-SPB-RAL Document 69 Filed 01/18/23 Page 2 of 2
recommending that Plaintiff’s motion for injunctive relief be denied because the motion’s
allegations and the relief sought are “not tethered to the facts alleged or claims asserted in the
Amended Complaint,” and also fail to demonstrate an imminent risk of irreparable harm [ECF
No. 55]. Objections to the R&R were due to be filed by December 19, 2022; however, no
objections have been received.
After de novo review of Plaintiff’s motions and other documents in the case, together
with the report and recommendation, the following order is entered:
AND NOW, this 18th day of January, 2023;
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiff’s motion for injunctive relief [ECF No. 51] is
DENIED. The report and recommendation of Magistrate Judge Lanzillo, issued December 2,
2022 [ECF No. 55], is adopted as the opinion of the court.
