GERARDO ALCALA, et al., 15 ORDER ADOPTING FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS, DENYING PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT Defendants. (Doc. Nos. 28, 31) 16 17 18 19 Plaintiff Robert C. Williams is appearing pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On January 25, 2018, the assigned magistrate judge issued findings and recommendations 20 recommending that plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment be denied. (Doc. No. 31.) The 21 findings and recommendations found that plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment is defective 22 because it fails to cite any evidence and only asserts brief legal conclusions. (Id. at 2.) The 23 findings and recommendations were served on the parties and contained notice that objections 24 were to be filed within fourteen days. (Id. at 3.) No objections were filed and the time period to 25 do so has expired. 26 In accordance with the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C), the court has conducted a 27 de novo review of this case. Having carefully reviewed the entire file, the court finds the findings 28 and recommendations to be supported by the record and by proper analysis. 1 1 Accordingly, 2 1. 3 4 adopted in full; and 2. Plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment filed on January 23, 2018 (Doc. No. 28) is denied. 5 6 The findings and recommendations dated January 25, 2018 (Doc. No. 31) are IT IS SO ORDERED. 7 8 Dated: April 18, 2018 UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
