CUFFIE v. MACY'S
MEMORANDUM ORDER adopting in part 6 Report and Recommendations. Because Plaintiff has already filed his Second Amended Complaint, the part of the Report & Recommendation recommending leave to amend has been rendered moot. Signed by Judge Arthur J. Schwab on 8/16/2017. (eet)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
District Judge Arthur J. Schwab
Magistrate Judge Lisa Pupo Lenihan
This pro se civil rights action was commenced on June 20, 2017. The Complaint
was filed in the above captioned case on June 26, 2017, after Plaintiff’s Motion to
Proceed In Forma Pauperis was granted.
The case was referred to United States
Magistrate Judge Lisa Pupo Lenihan for pretrial proceedings in accordance with the
Magistrate Judges Act, 28 U.S.C. §636(b)(1), and Local Rules of Court 72.C and 72.D.
The Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation (ECF No. 6), filed on July 5,
2017, recommended that this civil action be dismissed without prejudice under 28
U.S.C. §1915(e)(2)(B)(ii) for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted,
and that Plaintiff be granted leave to file a second amended complaint, to correct the
deficiencies noted in the Report and Recommendation, within fourteen (14) days of the
date of the District Judge’s order on the Report and Recommendation. The Report and
Recommendation further recommended that if Plaintiff failed to timely file a second
amended complaint or notified the Court that he did not intend to file a second
amended complaint, that the case be dismissed with prejudice.
Service of the Report and Recommendation was made on Plaintiff at his address
of record, 1716 Davidson Street, Aliquippa, PA 15001, via U.S. First Class Mail. Plaintiff
was informed that in accordance with the Magistrate Judges Act, 28 U.S.C. §
636(b)(1)(B) and (C), and Rule 72.D.2 of the Local Rules of Court, that he had fourteen
(14) days to file any objections. Prior to the deadline for filing objections, Plaintiff filed
his Second Amended Complaint (ECF No. 8) on July 14, 2017.
Plaintiff has not filed
any objections to the Report and Recommendation.
After review of the pleadings and documents in the case, together with the
Report and Recommendation, the following Order is entered:
AND NOW, this 16th day of August, 2017,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Report and Recommendation (ECF No. 6) is
ADOPTED IN PART AND REJECTED IN PART. The Report and Recommendation is
adopted in full except with regard to granting Plaintiff fourteen (14) days from the date
of this Order to file a Second Amended Complaint. Because Plaintiff has already filed
his Second Amended Complaint, the part of the Report & Recommendation
recommending leave to amend has been rendered moot, and therefore, is rejected.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Report and Recommendation (ECF No. 6)
of Magistrate Judge Lenihan, dated July 5, 2017, is adopted as the opinion of the Court.
BY THE COURT:
