UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
October 19, 2007
LEON STREETER, PLAINTIFF,
GLENN S. GOORD, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Thomas J. McAVOY, Senior United States District Judge
DECISION & ORDER
This pro se action brought pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 was referred by this Court to the Hon. Randolph F. Treece, United States Magistrate Judge, for a Report-Recommendation pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and Local Rule N.D.N.Y. 72.3(c). The Report-Recommendation and Order dated September 17, 2007 recommends that Defendants' motion for summary judgment be granted. See Rep.-Rec. & Ord., p. 20 [dkt. # 107. Plaintiff has filed objections to the recommendation. See Obj. [dkt. # 108].
When objections to a magistrate judge's Report-Recommendation are lodged, the Court reviews the record de novo. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). After such a review, the Court may "accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the findings or recommendations made by the magistrate [judge]. The [Court] may also receive further evidence or recommit the matter to the magistrate [judge] with instructions." Id.
Having reviewed the record de novo and having considered the issues raised in the objections, this Court has determined to accept and adopt the recommendation of Magistrate Judge Treece for the reasons stated in the September 17, 2007 Report-Recommendation and Order.
Therefore, it is hereby ORDERED that Defendants' motion for summary judgment [dkt. # 92] is GRANTED and the action is DISMISSED in its entirety.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
