ORDER ADOPTING FINDINGS AND R E C O M M E N D A T I O N D E N Y I N G PLAINTIFF'S MOTION FOR INJUNCTIVE RELIEF (ECF No. 12)
Plaintiff Jon Christ ("Plaintiff") is a state prisoner proceeding pro se in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983.
This action is proceeding on Plaintiff's Complaint, which has not yet been screened by this Court. (ECF No. 1.)
On May 12, 2011, Plaintiff filed a motion seeking a preliminary injunction. (ECF No. 9.) In that Motion, Plaintiff stated that, on April 15, 2011, he was informed by prison staff that all electronic appliances were going to be taken from inmates. Plaintiff requested an injunction to stop that from happening.
The matter was referred to a United States Magistrate Judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) and Local Rule 302. On September 2, 2011, the Magistrate Judge filed a Findings and Recommendation recommending that Plaintiff's Motion for Preliminary Injunction be denied. (ECF No. 12.) The Magistrate Judge found that Plaintiff failed to meet the legal prerequisites for injunctive relief.*fn1 No objections were filed.
In accordance with the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C), this Court has conducted a de novo review of this case. Having carefully reviewed the entire file, the Court finds the Findings and Recommendation to be supported by the record and by proper analysis.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The Findings and Recommendation, filed September 2, 2011, is ADOPTED; and
2. Plaintiff's Motion for Preliminary Injunction is DENIED. IT IS SO ORDERED.
CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
