Stotler v. Johnson County Corrections Center et al
Order accepting the 9 findings and conclusions of the magistrate judge. The court overrules Plaintiff's 11 objection to the Report, and dismisses with prejudice this action. (Ordered by Judge Sam A Lindsay on 5/31/2017) (rekc)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS
CODY A. STOTLER, #126091918,
JOHNSON COUNTY CORRECTIONS
CENTER, et. al.,
Civil Action No. 3:16-CV-2858-L
This pro se action was referred for judicial screening to United States Magistrate Judge
Renee Harris Toliver, who entered the Findings, Conclusions, and Recommendation of the United
States Magistrate Judge (“Report”) on March 24, 2017. The Report recommends dismissing this
action, as Plaintiff failed to state a cognizable claim upon which relief may be granted. Further,
the Report recommends denying leave to amend, as it is not required when a pro se plaintiff cannot,
as a matter of law, state a cognizable legal claim. Plaintiff filed an objection to the Report.
Plaintiff does not object to a specific finding in the Report. Instead, Plaintiff’s objection
only serves to reiterate his Complaint, which sought access to a law library at Johnson County
Corrections Center. As stated in the Report, this is not a cognizable claim under 42 U.S.C. § 1983.
As Plaintiff does not object to the findings or conclusions in the Report, his objection is overruled.
Having reviewed the motion, record, Report, and applicable law, and having conducted a
de novo review of that portion of the Report to which Plaintiff objected, the court determines that
the findings and conclusions of the magistrate judge are correct, and accepts them as those of the
Order – Page 1
court. Accordingly, the court overrules Plaintiff’s objection to the Report, and dismisses with
prejudice this action.
It is so ordered this 31st day of May, 2017.
Sam A. Lindsay
United States District Judge
