The pro se plaintiffs have filed this action against the defendants alleging various
violations of their constitutional rights. The plaintiffs have also filed a motion seeking a
temporary restraining order (TRO) to prevent the defendants from further harassment while
this action is pending.
The Magistrate Judge assigned to this action1 has prepared a Report and
Recommendation wherein she suggests that this court should deny the plaintiffs’ motion for
a TRO. The Report sets forth in detail the relevant facts and standards of law on this matter,
and the court incorporates such without a recitation and without a hearing.
The plaintiffs were advised of their right to file objections to the Report and
Recommendation. However, the plaintiffs have not filed any objections and the time within

of the Report and Recommendation to which specific objection is made, and the court may accept, reject,
or modify, in whole or in part, the recommendation of the Magistrate Judge, or recommit the matter to the
Magistrate Judge with instructions. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1).
which to do so has now expired. In the absence of specific objections to the Report of the
Magistrate Judge, this court is not required to give any explanation for adopting the
recommendation. See Camby v. Davis, 718 F.2d 198, 199 (4th Cir. 1983).
The Magistrate Judge has thoroughly analyzed the motion for a TRO under the
appropriate standards of law and opines that the plaintiffs have failed to show that they are
clearly entitled to the relief sought. This court has reviewed the record, the applicable law,
and agrees with the Magistrate Judge’s recommendation. The Report is adopted and
incorporated herein by reference.
Accordingly, the plaintiffs’ motion for a temporary restraining order (ECF No. 19) is
denied. The Clerk is directed to return this file to the Magistrate Judge for further
