C17-5696 BHS Defendant. 12 13 This matter comes before the Court on the Report and Recommendation (“R&R”) 14 of the Honorable Theresa L. Fricke, United States Magistrate Judge (Dkt. 5), and Plaintiff 15 Gary Casterlow-Bey’s (“Plaintiff”) objections to the R&R (Dkt. 6). 16 On October 10, 2017, Judge Fricke issued the R&R recommending that the Court 17 dismiss Plaintiff’s complaint because it fails to state a claim upon which relief may be 18 granted. Dkt. 5. On October 25, 2017, Plaintiff filed objections. Dkt. 6. 19 The district judge must determine de novo any part of the magistrate judge’s 20 disposition that has been properly objected to. The district judge may accept, reject, or 21 modify the recommended disposition; receive further evidence; or return the matter to the 22 magistrate judge with instructions. Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(3). ORDER - 1 1 In this case, the Court concludes that Plaintiff’s objections are without merit. 2 Plaintiff continues to argue that he may sue the federal government requesting that the 3 government (1) identify his nationality of “Moorish-American” on his birth certificate, 4 (2) eradicate the association of slave names, and (3) remit reparations. None of these 5 assertions states a valid claim for relief. Therefore, the Court having considered the 6 R&R, Plaintiff’s objections, and the remaining record, does hereby find and order as 7 follows: 8 (1) The R&R is ADOPTED; 9 (2) Plaintiff’s complaint is DISMISSED with prejudice for failure to state a 10 11 claim upon which relief may be granted, (3) 12 For purposes of 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g), Plaintiff is incarcerated and detained; and 13 (4) 14 Dated this 17th day of November, 2017. The Clerk shall close this case. A 15 16 BENJAMIN H. SETTLE United States District Judge 17 18 19 20 21 22 ORDER - 2
