§ CIVIL ACTION NO. 7:13-CV-627
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
Pending before the Court is Plaintiff’s claim for injunctive relief under 42 U.S.C. ' 1983,
on the basis that Defendant’s implementation of Texas’s discretionary parole system violates the
Eighth Amendment’s prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment. On June 3, 2016, the
Magistrate Court issued the Report and Recommendation, recommending that Plaintiff’s ' 1983
claim be dismissed without prejudice as moot, and that the Motion for Class Certification be
denied as moot. The time for filing objections has passed, and no objections have been filed.
Pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 72(b), the Court has reviewed the Report and
Recommendation for clear error.1 Finding no clear error, the Court adopts the Report and
Recommendation in its entirety. Accordingly, Plaintiff’s ' 1983 claim is DISMISS$ED without
prejudice as moot. Plaintiff’s Motion for Class Certification (Dkt. Entry No. 1 at 8-9) is
DENIED as moot.
As noted by the Fifth Circuit, A[t]he advisory committee=s note to Rule 72(b) states that, >[w]hen
no timely objection is filed, the [district] court need only satisfy itself that there is no clear error on the face of the
record in order to accept the recommendation.=@ Douglas v. United Services Auto. Ass=n, 79 F.3d 1415, 1420 (5th
Cir. 1996)(quoting Fed. R. Civ. P.72(b) advisory committee=s note (1983)) superceded by statute on other grounds
by 28 U.S.C. ' 636(b)(1), as stated in ACS Recovery Servs., Inc v. Griffin, No. 11-40446, 2012 WL 1071216, at *7
n.5 (5th Cir. April 2, 2012).
