' 636(b)(1), and Rules 72.1.3 and 72.1.4 of the Local Rules for Magistrate Judges.
The magistrate judge's report and recommendation (ECF No. 201), filed on April 20, 2011, recommended that plaintiff=s Motion for Clarification of Plaintiff=s Motion for Preliminary Injunction (ECF No. 199) be denied as this court has no power to issue an injunction against non-parties.
