ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS re 30 Denying 26 Defendant's Motion to Dismiss; signed by Judge Ronald B. Leighton. **1 PAGE(S), PRINT ALL**(Keith Closson, Prisoner ID: 632309)(DN)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON
KEITH L. CLOSSON,
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT
CASE NO. 3:16-cv-05062 RBL
The Court, having reviewed the Report and Recommendation of Magistrate Judge J.
14 Richard Creatura, objections to the Report and Recommendation, if any, and the remaining
record, does hereby find and ORDER:
The Court adopts the Report and Recommendation [Dkt. #30].
The Court concludes Plaintiff has stated a plausible claim for relief against
17 Defendant. Plaintiff has sufficiently alleged a connection between Defendant and the DOC
policy that contributed to Plaintiff being denied soap for 27 and 11 days, and Defendant is not
entitled to qualified immunity because Plaintiff does not seek damages. Therefore, Defendant’s
motion to dismiss [Dkt. #26] is DENIED.
DATED this 3rd day of January, 2017.
Ronald B. Leighton
United States District Judge
