DONALD BLEVINS, JR., et al., Defendants. ** ** ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ** Civil Action No. 5:10-cv-237-JMH MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER ** ** On October 18, 2010, this Court entered a Memorandum Opinion and Order [DE 17] denying Plaintiffs' Motion for Preliminary Injunction [DE 10] and requiring Plaintiffs to show cause why this matter should not be dismissed for failure to state a claim for the reasons set forth in that Memorandum Opinion and Order. have now filed a Response [DE 18]. In that Response, Plaintiffs merely summarize their earlier arguments offered in support of their Motion for Preliminary Injunction and argue, as well, that it would be a violation of 10 U.S.C. § 1044b for the Fayette County Clerk to require recordation of an original military power of attorney alongside their deed because § 1044b provides that military powers of attorney are "exempt from . . . recording that is provided for powers of Plaintiffs attorney under the laws of a State." Having considered these arguments, the Court remains unpersuaded that Plaintiff's Complaint states a claim for the reasons set forth in its Memorandum Opinion and Order dated October 18, 2010 [DE 17]. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that Plaintiffs' claims shall be DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE. This the 26th day of October, 2010.
