J. WANG, ET AL.,
ORDER ADOPTING FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATION DENYING PLAINTIFF'S MOTION FOR INJUNCTIVE RELIEF
(ECF Numbers #23 & #25)
Plaintiff Timothy Howard ("Plaintiff") is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983.
This action is proceeding on Plaintiff's First Amended Complaint, filed January 13, 2011. (ECF No. 16.)
On August 17, 2011, Plaintiff filed a motion seeking a temporary restraining order. (ECF No. 23.) In that Motion, Plaintiff requested that Defendants be required to provide adequate medical care. Specifically, Plaintiff alleged he has been deprived of medical care, medical appliances, and medication since August 21, 2009.
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 Temporary Restraining Order be denied. (ECF No. 25.) 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 Temporary Restraining Order is DENIED. IT IS SO ORDERED.
CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
