GREGG COUNTY JAIL CIVIL ACTION NO. 6:09cv174 MEMORANDUM ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION OF THE UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE AND ENTERING FINAL JUDGMENT The Plaintiff Gerald Harris, proceeding pro se, filed this civil rights lawsuit under 42 U.S.C. 1983 complaining of alleged deprivations of his constitutional rights. This Court ordered that the case be referred to the United States Magistrate Judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 636(b)(1) and (3) and the Amended Order for the Adoption of Local Rules for the Assignment of Duties to United States Magistrate Judges.

When Harris did not respond to this order, the Magistrate Judge issued a Report on August 3, 2009, recommending that the lawsuit be dismissed. A copy of this Report was sent to Harris at his last known address, return receipt requested, but no objections were received; accordingly, Harris is barred from de novo review by the district judge of those findings, conclusions, and recommendations and, except upon grounds of plain error, from appellate review of the unobjected-to factual findings and legal conclusions accepted and adopted by the district court.
