UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
March 30, 2008
REUBEN AVENT, PLAINTIFF,
JOHN DOE, CORRECTIONAL OFFICER; JACK DOE, CORRECTIONAL OFFICER; K. PERLMAN, SUPERINTENDENT; C. PARMITA, I.G.P.; SUPERINTENDENT GRAHAM; GLENN S. GOORD, COMMISSIONER; THOMAS EAGEN; AND SCHWEBER, I.G.P., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Scullin, Senior Judge
In an Order and Report-Recommendation dated March 20, 2007, Magistrate Judge DiBianco recommended that the Court grant Defendants' motion to dismiss and deny Plaintiff's motion for joinder and to supplement his complaint. See Dkt. No. 29. Plaintiff has filed objections to those recommendations. See Dkt. No. 30.
It is somewhat difficult to comprehend the specific nature of Plaintiff's objections. However, a review of the record demonstrates that, in his objections, Plaintiff raises many of the same arguments that he did in opposition to Defendants' motion to dismiss. The Court finds such objections without merit for the same reasons that Magistrate Judge DiBianco rejected these arguments in his Order and Report-Recommendation. Moreover, to the extent that Plaintiff is requesting leave to file an amended complaint, the Court denies that request as futile. See Tocker v. Philip Morris Cos., Inc., 470 F.3d 481, 491 (2d Cir. 2006) (holding that "a motion for leave to amend a complaint may be denied when amendment would be futile" (citation omitted)).
Accordingly, the Court hereby
ORDERS that Magistrate Judge DiBianco's March 20, 2007 Order and Report-Recommendation is ADOPTED IN ITS ENTIRETY for the reasons stated therein; and the Court further
ORDERS that Defendants' motion to dismiss Plaintiff's complaint is GRANTED; and the Court further
ORDERS that Plaintiff's motion for joinder and to supplement his pleading is DENIED; and the Court further
ORDERS that the Clerk of the Court shall enter judgment in favor of Defendants and close this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
