IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
December 4, 2007
CEDRIC WEBB, #A-80938 PLAINTIFF,
EUGENE MCADORY, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge
Plaintiff Cedric Webb ("Plaintiff"), an inmate in the custody of the Illinois Department of Corrections, filed a complaint (Doc. 1) pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 alleging that Defendants violated his constitutional rights by retaliating against him for filing grievances while he was incarcerated at Menard Correctional Center in 2003-2004. On September 27, 2007, Defendants filed a motion for summary judgment, which argued that Defendants should be granted summary judgment because they are entitled to qualified immunity. (Doc. 18.)
This matter now comes before the Court on a Report and Recommendation (the "Report") issued by U.S. Magistrate Judge Clifford J. Proud on November 13, 2007 pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B). (Doc. 31.) Magistrate Judge Proud's Report recommends that the motion for summary judgment filed by Defendants McAdory, Furlon, and Korando be denied. (Id.)
Under Rule 73.1 of the Local Rules of the Southern District of Illinois, the parties had ten days in which to serve and file written objections to the Report. As of this date, no objections have been filed. The ten-day period in which parties may file objections has expired. Therefore, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b), this Court need not conduct de novo review. Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149-52 (1985).
Accordingly, the Court ADOPTS Judge Proud's Report (Doc. 31), and DENIES Defendants' motion for summary judgment. (Doc. 18.)
IT IS SO ORDERED.
