IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA FRESNO DIVISION
March 15, 2010
SHANE SAFFI, PLAINTIFF,
SIDNEY KNIGHT, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Honorable B. Lynn Winmill Chief U. S. District Judge
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
The Court has before it a Report and Recommendation filed by the United States Magistrate Judge. (Docket No. 42.) The time period for filing objections to the Report has passed without either party filing an objection.
Having reviewed the Report and Recommendation and having independently reviewed the record in this case, the Court finds that the Report and Recommendation reflects an appropriate application of the law to the facts of this case. Specifically, the Court agrees that Plaintiff's claims against the Defendants named in this lawsuit are barred by Heck v. Humphrey, 512 U.S. 477 (1994). See also Edwards v. Balisok, 520 U.S. 641, 646 (1997) (applying Heck to bar claims that necessarily imply the invalidity of a prison disciplinary conviction resulting in the loss of good time credits).
Therefore, the Court adopts the Report and Recommendation in full. Defendants' Motion for Summary Judgment is granted, and this case shall be dismissed.
NOW THEREFORE IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Report and Recommendation (Docket No. 42) is ADOPTED in full.
IT IS FURTHER HEREBY ORDERED that Defendants' Motion for Summary Judgment (Docket No. 39) is GRANTED.
