United States District Court, W.D. Pennsylvania

REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
LISA PUPO LENIHAN, Magistrate Judge.
It is respectfully recommended that Plaintiffs Complaint (ECF No.2) be dismissed without prejudice, and that Plaintiff be granted leave to file an amended complaint.

1. Order the appropriate law enforcement file criminal charges against the defendant.
2. Order the defendants to pay a sum equal to the amount garnished illegally from plaintiff.
