Defendants filed a motion for summary judgment on April 20, 2011. On July 27, 2011, the Magistrate Judge issued findings and recommendations recommending that Defendant's motion for summary judgment be granted on the ground that Defendants are entitled to qualified immunity. On August 25, 2011, Plaintiff sought an extension of time to file objections, which was granted. The objection deadline is now September 26, 2011, and Defendant is entitled to fourteen days thereafter within which to respond to any objections. Local Rule 304(d). The Court declines, in the interest of judicial economy, to address motions that shall be moot if the findings and recommendations is adopted.
