Bolz v. Unknown Defendants
MEMORANDUM ORDER overruling objections and adopting the magistrate judge's 14 Report and Recommendation. Signed by Judge Thad Heartfield on 9/19/2017. (bjc, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS
CIVIL ACTION NO. 1:16-CV-503
MEMORANDUM ORDER OVERRULING OBJECTIONS AND
ADOPTING THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
Plaintiff, Mikeal Bolz, an inmate confined at the Stiles Unit with the Texas Department of
Criminal Justice, Correctional Institutions Division, proceeding pro se, filed this civil rights action
pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 against unknown defendants.
The Court referred this matter to the Honorable Zack Hawthorn, United States Magistrate
Judge, at Beaumont, Texas, for consideration pursuant to applicable laws and orders of this Court.
The Magistrate Judge recommends plaintiff’s Motion for Emergency Hearing, a Temporary
Restraining Order and/or Preliminary Injunction be denied.
The Court has received and considered the Report and Recommendation of United States
Magistrate Judge filed pursuant to such order, along with the record, and pleadings. Plaintiff filed
objections to the Report and Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge. This requires a
de novo review of the objections in relation to the pleadings and applicable law. See FED. R. CIV.
After careful consideration, the Court finds the objections lacking in merit. Plaintiff has
failed to establish a likelihood of success on the merits nor has he shown a substantial threat of
irreparable injury if the injunction is not issued. Furthermore, plaintiff has not discussed how the
threatened injury outweighs any harm that may result from the injunction nor has he shown that the
injunction will not disserve the public interest.
Accordingly, plaintiff’s objections are overruled. The findings of fact and conclusions of law
of the Magistrate Judge are correct and the report of the Magistrate Judge is ADOPTED.
SIGNED this the 19 day of September, 2017.
