UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
December 16, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
JAMES STEWART, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Honorable Richard J. Arcara United States District Judge
This case was referred to Magistrate Judge Hugh B. Scott, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). On August 13, 2009, defendant filed a motion for suppression. On September 17, 2010, Magistrate Judge Scott filed a Report and Recommendation, recommending that defendant's motion to suppress his statements made on July 28, 2008 be denied.
Plaintiff filed objections to the Report and Recommendation on October 18, 2010 and the government filed a response thereto. Oral argument on the objections was held on November 17, 2010.
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1), this Court must make a de novo determination of those portions of the Report and Recommendation to which objections have been made. Upon a de novo review of the Report and Recommendation, and after reviewing the submissions and hearing oral argument from the parties, the Court adopts the proposed findings of the Report and Recommendation.
Accordingly, for the reasons set forth in Magistrate Judge Scott's Report and Recommendation, defendant's motion to suppress his statements made on July 28, 2008 are denied.
The parties shall appear on December 17, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. for a meeting to set a trial date.
