BRUNO MAZZEO-UNUM, Plaintiff,
DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION; UNITED STATES PATENT/TRADEMARK OFFICE. Defendants.
DECISION & ORDER
THOMAS J. McAVOY, Sr., District Judge.
This pro se action pursuant to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e-5, and the Americans with Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C. § 12101, was referred to the Hon. Randolph F. Treece, United States Magistrate Judge, for a Report-Recommendation pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and Local Rule 72.3(c).
The Report-Recommendation dated January 11, 2013, recommended that Plaintiff's action be dismissed for failure to state a claim for which relief may be granted pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(b)(ii).
Plaintiff filed timely objections to the Report-Recommendation, essentially raising the same arguments presented to the Magistrate Judge, as well as a plethora of ambiguous statements that seem to have no correlation to the initial cause of action.
When objections to a magistrate judge's Report-Recommendation are lodged, the Court makes a "de novo determination of those portions of the report or specified proposed findings or recommendations to which objection is made." 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 judge may also receive further evidence or recommit the matter to the magistrate judge with instructions." Id.
Having reviewed the record de novo and having considered the issues raised in the Plaintiff's objections, this Court has determined to accept the recommendation of Magistrate Judge Treece for the reasons stated in the Report-Recommendation.
It is therefore
ORDERED that Plaintiff's complaint be DISMISSED for failure to state a claim on which relief can be granted pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B)(ii).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
