The parties were granted thirty days to file objections and no objections were filed. On January 10, 2012, an amended order adopting issued dismissing Plaintiff's official capacity claims and request for declaratory relief. (ECF No. 42.) On January 17, 2012,Plaintiff filed a motion for an evidentiary hearing stating that he did not receive the findings and objections. (ECF No. 45.) An order issued on February 2, 2012, denying Plaintiff's motion for an evidentiary hearing and granting Plaintiff an opportunity to file objections to the findings and recommendations within thirty days. (ECF No. 50.) Plaintiff filed objections to the finding and recommendations on February 10, 2012. (ECF No. 54.).
In accordance with the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C), this Court conducted a de novo review of this case. After a carefully review of the entire file, the Court adopted the findings and recommendations, finding them to be supported by the record and by proper analysis. The Court has considered Plaintiff's objections and finds the order adopting remains valid and intact.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
