United States District Court, S.D. Illinois
July 29, 2014
KEVIN WILLIAMS, Plaintiff,
VIPIN SHAW and DONALD GAETZ, Defendants.
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
NANCY J. ROSENSTENGEL, District Judge.
Plaintiff has brought this Section 1983 action alleging that Defendants were deliberately indifferent to his asthmatic medical condition. On April 10, 2014, Defendant Gaetz filed a Motion for Summary Judgment (Doc. 23) on the issue of exhaustion (Doc. 23). This case comes before the Court on a Report and Recommendation (Doc. 42) entered on July 10, 2014, by Magistrate Judge Donald G. Wilkerson in which Magistrate Judge Wilkerson recommends that the Motion for Summary Judgment filed by Defendant Gaetz be denied.
The parties were informed that their deadline for objecting to Magistrate Judge Wilkerson's Report and Recommendation was July 28, 2014-a date that has come and gone. Because no party has filed an objection, the undersigned need not undertake de novo review. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C) ("A judge of the court shall make a de novo determination of those portions of the report or specified proposed findings or recommendations to which objection is made. ") (emphasis added). See also Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140 (1985); Johnson v. Zema Sys. Corp., 170 F.3d 734, 741 (7th Cir. 1999); Video Views, Inc. v. Studio 21, Ltd., 797 F.2d 538 (7th Cir. 1986).
The undersigned accordingly ADOPTS in its entirety Magistrate Judge Wilkerson's Report & Recommendation (Doc. 42) and rules as follows: Defendant Gaetz's Motion for Summary Judgment on the issue of exhaustion is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
