United States District Court, W.D. Pennsylvania
February 9, 2015
JOHN LEWIS GERHOLT, Plaintiff,
DONALD ORR, JR., Defendant.
KIM R. GIBSON, District Judge.
This matter was referred to Magistrate Judge Keith A. Pesto for pretrial proceedings in accordance with the Magistrates Act, 28 U.S.C.§ 636(b), and Local Rule 72 for Magistrate Judges.
The Magistrate Judge filed a Report and Recommendation on January 26, 2015, docket no. 43, recommending that defendant Orr's motion for summary judgment, docket no. 38, be granted.
The parties were notified that, pursuant to 28 U.S.C.§ 636 (b) (1), they had fourteen days to file written objections to the Reports and Recommendations. Plaintiff filed timely objections to the Report and Recommendation at docket no. 4 4, which I have reviewed de novo. They argue the merits of the complaint but do not contest the lack of exhaustion.
After de novo review of the record, the Report and Recommendation, and the objections thereto, the following judgment order is entered:
JUDGMENT (see fed.R.Civ. P. 58 (b) (1) (C))
AND NOW, this 6th day of February, 2015, it is
ORDERED that defendant Orr's motion for summary judgment, docket no. 38, is granted. The Report and Recommendation is adopted as the opinion of the Court. The Clerk shall mark this matter closed.
