Weldon Ingram v. Stephen W. Herrick

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK


March 23, 2011

WELDON INGRAM, PLAINTIFF,
v.
STEPHEN W. HERRICK, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.

MEMORANDUM-DECISION AND ORDER

Pro se plaintiff Weldon Ingram, an inmate at Albany County Correctional Facility, brings this action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, alleging various violations of his constitutional rights resulting from his state prosecution. (See Compl., Dkt. No. 1.) In a Report-Recommendation and Order (R&R) filed January 24, 2011, Magistrate Judge Randolph F. Treece recommended the dismissal of Ingram's complaint.*fn1 (Dkt. No. 5.) The court has received four letters from Ingram which will be treated as objections. (Dkt. Nos. 8, 10, 11, 12.) For the reasons that follow, the R&R is adopted and Ingram's claims are dismissed.

Before entering final judgment, this court routinely reviews all report and recommendation orders in cases it has referred to a magistrate judge. If a party has objected to specific elements of the magistrate judge's findings and recommendations, this court reviews those findings and recommendations de novo. See Almonte v. N.Y. State Div. of Parole,No. 04-cv-484, 2006 WL 149049, at *6-7 (N.D.N.Y. Jan. 18, 2006). In those cases where no party has filed an objection, or only a vague or general objection has been filed, this court reviews the findings and recommendations of a magistrate judge for clear error. See id.

The court is unable to discern any objections to Judge Treece's R&R. (See Dkt. Nos. 8, 10, 11, 12.) Therefore, having reviewed the R&R for clear error, the court finds none. Accordingly, the R&R is adopted in its entirety, and, for the reasons articulated therein, Ingram's claims are dismissed.

WHEREFORE, for the foregoing reasons, it is hereby

ORDERED that Magistrate Judge Randolph F. Treece's January 24, 2011 Report-Recommendation and Order (Dkt. No. 5) is ADOPTED;and it is further

ORDERED that Ingram's complaint is DISMISSED; and it is further ORDERED that the Clerk close this case and provide a copy of this Memorandum-Decision and Order to the parties.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
