UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
January 29, 2013
LEROME HILSON, PLAINTIFF,
M. MALTESE; ELSENHEIMER; C. DINKINS; AND RYDER,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Hon. Norman A. Mordue, U.S. District Judge:
MEMORANDUM-DECISION AND ORDER
Upon referral pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) and Local Rule 72.3(c), United States Magistrate Judge Andrew T. Baxter issued an excellent and thorough Report and Recommendation (Dkt. No. 62) recommending that this Court grant defendants' motion (Dkt. No. 51) for summary judgment dismissing the amended complaint (Dkt. No. 37). Plaintiff objects (Dkt. No. 64). Under 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C), this Court is required to review de novo those parts of a report and recommendation to which a party specifically objects.
Given the extensive nature of plaintiff's objections, the Court conducts a de novo review of the entire Report and Recommendation. Upon de novo review, the Court accepts and adopts the Report and Recommendation in full.
It is therefore ORDERED that the Report and Recommendation (Dkt. No. 62) is accepted and adopted; and it is further
ORDERED that defendants' motion (Dkt. No. 51) for summary judgment is granted; and it is further
ORDERED that the amended complaint (Dkt. No. 37) is dismissed on the merits and the case is closed; and it is further
ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court is directed to serve copies of this Memorandum-Decision and Order in accordance with the Local Rules of the Northern District of New York.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
