UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
March 23, 2011
WELDON INGRAM, PLAINTIFF,
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
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.
