SCOTT A. EVANS, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Sean J. McLAUGHLIN United States District Judge
Plaintiff's complaint was received by the Clerk of Court on May 1, 2007 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 Report and Recommendation , filed on May 16, 2007, recommended that the case be dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.

After de novo review of the petition and documents in the case, together with the Report and Recommendation and objections thereto, the following order is entered:
AND NOW, this 8th day of June 2007;
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the instant case is DISMISSED for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.
