UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
January 26, 2012
EUGENE J. FISCH, PLAINTIFF,
CONSULATE GENERAL OF THE REPUBLIC OF POLAND, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Thomas J. McAvoy, United States District Judge
DECISION and ORDER
This matter was referred to the Hon. Andrew T. Baxter, United States Magistrate Judge, for a Report and Recommendation ("Report-Recommendation") pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and Rule 72.3(d) of the Local Rules of the Northern District of New York. Plaintiff has raised objections to the November 9, 2011 Report-Recommendation.
When objections to a magistrate judge's Report-Recommendation are lodged, the Court reviews the record de novo. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). After such a review, the Court may "accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the findings or recommendations made by the magistrate judge. The Court may also receive further evidence or recommit the matter to the magistrate judge with instructions." Id. Thus, the Court reviews the instant matter de novo.
After reviewing the matter de novo, the Court agrees with the Report-Recommendation in its entirety. The Complaint should be dismissed, with prejudice, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B)(i)-(iii), because it is frivolous and malicious; it fails to state a plausible claim on which relief can be granted; and it seeks relief against Defendants who are immune from such relief. Consequently, the Court adopts the Report-Recommendation in its entirety. The motion for a three judge court (Dkt. No. 14) is DENIED as moot.
The Complaint is DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE. The Clerk of the Court is directed to close the file in this matter.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
