UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
March 25, 2009
HECTOR MATOS, JR., PLAINTIFF,
T. MCKINNEY; SERGEANT, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gary L. Sharpe U.S. District Judge
MEMORANDUM-DECISION AND ORDER
The above-captioned matter comes to this court following a Report-Recommendation and Order ("R&R") by Magistrate Judge Randolph F. Treece, filed August 21, 2008. (Dkt. No. 36.) The R&R*fn1 recommended granting defendants' motion to dismiss for lack of prosecution*fn2 and dismiss the complaint. On September 8, 2008, plaintiff Hector Matos, Jr., filed a letter construed as an objection to the R&R. (See Dkt. No. 37.) In reality, the letter merely states that Matos has unsuccessfully attempted to contact defendants' counsel. Matos includes a copy of a letter he wrote to defense counsel indicating his willingness to pursue the case. Despite this assertion, however, nothing in the record indicates that Matos has rectified the issue pointed out by Judge Treece.*fn3 Since Matos has failed to object specifically to the R&R, the court has reviewed the R&R for clear error. Finding none, the complaint is dismissed.
Wherefore, it is hereby
ORDERED that the Report-Recommendation and Order of Magistrate Judge Randolph F. Treece filed August 21, 2008 is accepted in its entirety for the reasons stated therein; and it is further
ORDERED that defendants' motion to dismiss is GRANTED and the complaint is dismissed; and it is further
ORDERED that the Clerk enter judgment in favor of the defendants and close the case; and it is further
ORDERED that the Clerk provide copies of this Decision and Order to the parties.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
