CIVIL ACTION NO. 4:16-03831-MGL
ORDER ADOPTING THE REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
AND SUMMARILY DISMISSING THE COMPLAINT WITHOUT PREJUDICE
AND WITHOUT ISSUANCE AND SERVICE OF PROCESS
This case was filed as a 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action. Plaintiff is proceeding pro se. The matter
is before the Court for review of the Report and Recommendation (Report) of the United States
Magistrate Judge suggesting the Court summarily dismiss the complaint without prejudice and
without issuance and service of process. The Report was made in accordance with 28 U.S.C. § 636
and Local Civil Rule 73.02 for the District of South Carolina.
The Magistrate Judge makes only a recommendation to this Court. The recommendation has
no presumptive weight. The responsibility to make a final determination remains with the Court.
Mathews v. Weber, 423 U.S. 261, 270 (1976). The Court is charged with making a de novo
determination of those portions of the Report 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 with instructions. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1).
The Magistrate Judge filed the Report on February 3, 2017, and the Clerk of Court entered
Plaintiff’s objections on February 22, 2017. The Court has carefully considered the objections, but
finds them to be without merit. Therefore, it will enter judgment accordingly.
The Court’s characterization of Plaintiff’s February 22, 2017, submission is a charitable one.
Frankly, Plaintiff has failed to object to the Report at all.
After a thorough review of the Report and the record in this case pursuant to the standard set
forth above, the Court adopts the Report and incorporates it herein. Therefore, it is the judgment
of the Court that the complaint is summarily DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE and without
issuance and service of process.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Signed this 22nd day of February, 2017, in Columbia, South Carolina.
