IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF TENNESSEE
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION AND DISMISSING CASE
On April 4, 2016, the pro se Defendant, Anita Harris, filed a notice of removal to this
Court of a matter before the Juvenile Court of Madison County, Tennessee. (Docket Entry
("D.E.") 1.) In her filing, she alleged racial discrimination on the part of the juvenile court judge,
Christy R. Little, who presided over a child custody dispute involving Harris and Keith Transou,
the father of the children at issue and the party to whom custody of the children was apparently
awarded. Pursuant to Administrative Order No. 2013-05, this action was referred to the assigned
magistrate judge, Edward G. Bryant, for management of all pretrial matters, including screening
of the removal documents. In a report and recommendation entered October 18, 2017, Judge
Bryant recommended that the case be dismissed sua sponte in accordance with Rule 12(b)(1) of
the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. (D.E. 7.) No objection to the report and recommendation
has been filed, and the time for such objection has expired. Having reviewed the report and
recommendation and the entire record, the Court hereby ADOPTS the report and DISMISSES
this matter in its entirety.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 10th day of January 2018.
