ALOYSIUS M. OLIVER, Plaintiff,
HOWARD HARNER, RICK HARRINGTON, Defendants.
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
NANCY J. ROSENSTENGEL, District Judge.
On March 10, 2014, Plaintiff Aloysius M. Oliver filed a civil rights complaint pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 alleging the denial of his request for a kosher diet that conforms with the tenets of his religion. The case comes before the Court on a Report and Recommendation entered on July 10, 2014, by Magistrate Judge Donald G. Wilkerson (Doc. 24). In the Report and Recommendation, Magistrate Judge Wilkerson recommends that the Court deny the Motion for Preliminary Injunction filed by Oliver (Doc. 19).
The parties were informed that their deadline for objecting to the 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). "If no objection or only partial objection is made, the district court judge reviews those unobjected portions for clear error." Johnson, 170 F.3d at 739 (citations omitted).
Finding no clear error, the undersigned accordingly ADOPTS Magistrate Judge Wilkerson's Report & Recommendation (Doc. 24) in its entirety and DENIES the Motion for a Preliminary Injunction (Doc. 19).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
