UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 16, 2009
JOSEPH JOHNSON, PLAINTIFF,
ROBERT S. KNAPP, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Dale S. Fischer United States District Judge
ORDER ACCEPTING REPORT AND ADOPTING FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS OF UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636, the Court has reviewed the Complaint, the records on file, and the Report and Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge. No objections to the Report and Recommendation have been filed. The Court accepts the Magistrate Judge's Report and adopts it as its own findings and conclusions. It notes, however, that the Court is no longer mandated to decide whether the defendants' conduct violated a constitutional right before it considers whether defendants had an objectively reasonable belief that their conduct was lawful. Pearson v. Callahan, 129 S.Ct. 808 (2009).
This recent change in the law has no impact on the Court's ruling.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
