The above captioned case was referred to United States Magistrate Judge Ila Jeanne Sensenich for pretrial proceedings in accordance with the Magistrates Act, 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1), and Rules 72.1.3 and 72.1.4 of the Local Rules for Magistrates. The case was transferred to Magistrate Judge Lisa Pupo Lenihan on April 6, 2004.
The Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation (Doc. No. 238), filed on June 5, 2006, recommended that the Motion for Summary Judgment filed by Defendant Rueda (Doc. No. 231) be granted. It further recommended that the Motion for Summary Judgment filed by the Commonwealth Defendants (Doc. No. 228) be granted as to Plaintiff's First Amendment access to courts claims and denied as to Plaintiff's First Amendment retaliation claims.
All parties were served with the Report and Recommendation and were advised they were allowed ten (10) days from the date of service to file written objections to the report and recommendation. Plaintiff filed Objections to the Report and Recommendation (Doc. No. 239), which upon review, are without merit.
After review of the pleadings and documents in the case, together with the report and recommendation and the objections thereto, the following order is entered: AND NOW, this 28th day of September, 2006;
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Motion for Summary Judgment filed by Defendant Rueda (Doc. No. 231) is GRANTED.
