IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
April 23, 2008
JEFFREY WARREN SPINNEY, PLAINTIFF,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Sean J. McLaughlin United States District Judge
AND NOW, this 23rd day of April, 2008, and upon de novo review, nunc pro tunc, of Plaintiff's Objections [Doc. No. 36] to Magistrate Judge Susan Paradise Baxter's report and recommendation dated February 28, 2008 [Doc. No. 32], recommending that Defendants' motion to dismiss or alternatively for summary judgment [Doc. No. 17] be granted in part and denied in part, the following order is entered:
The Court adopts the Report and Recommendation [Doc. No. 32] of Magistrate Judge Baxter, filed on February 28, 2008 as the opinion of the Court with the exception of the Magistrate Judge's dismissal of the negligence claim involving the application of the flex-cuffs. The Court finds that there are material issues of fact relative to that claim which renders its dismissal inappropriate.
