Plaintiff's civil rights complaint was received by the Clerk of Court on November 14, 2006 and was referred to United States Magistrate Judge Susan Paradise Baxter for report and recommendation 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 Magistrate Judge's oral Report and Recommendation was entered on the record during a telephonic motion hearing held on December 18, 2006. It was the Magistrate Judge's recommendation that Plaintiff's motion [Doc. No. 5] for a temporary restraining order be denied. The parties were allowed ten (10) days in which to file objections. Plaintiff subsequently filed a document [Doc.

On January 10, 2007, Plaintiff filed a letter supplement to his objections [Doc. No. 9].

AND NOW, this 18th day of January, 2007, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Plaintiff's Motion for Temporary Restraining Order [Doc. No. 5] is DENIED.
