Casterlow-Bey v. United States of America
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION by Judge Benjamin H. Settle re 6 Objections to Report and Recommendation filed by Gary Casterlow-Bey. (TG; cc mailed to plaintiff)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
CASE NO. C17-5696 BHS
This matter comes before the Court on the Report and Recommendation (“R&R”)
of the Honorable Theresa L. Fricke, United States Magistrate Judge (Dkt. 5), and Plaintiff
Gary Casterlow-Bey’s (“Plaintiff”) objections to the R&R (Dkt. 6).
On October 10, 2017, Judge Fricke issued the R&R recommending that the Court
dismiss Plaintiff’s complaint because it fails to state a claim upon which relief may be
granted. Dkt. 5. On October 25, 2017, Plaintiff filed objections. Dkt. 6.
The district judge must determine de novo any part of the magistrate judge’s
disposition that has been properly objected to. The district judge may accept, reject, or
modify the recommended disposition; receive further evidence; or return the matter to the
magistrate judge with instructions. Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(3).
ORDER - 1
In this case, the Court concludes that Plaintiff’s objections are without merit.
Plaintiff continues to argue that he may sue the federal government requesting that the
government (1) identify his nationality of “Moorish-American” on his birth certificate,
(2) eradicate the association of slave names, and (3) remit reparations. None of these
assertions states a valid claim for relief. Therefore, the Court having considered the
R&R, Plaintiff’s objections, and the remaining record, does hereby find and order as
The R&R is ADOPTED;
Plaintiff’s complaint is DISMISSED with prejudice for failure to state a
claim upon which relief may be granted,
For purposes of 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g), Plaintiff is incarcerated and detained;
Dated this 17th day of November, 2017.
The Clerk shall close this case.

United States District Judge
