IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF NORTH DAKOTA SOUTHEASTERN DIVISION
September 21, 2011
DAVID MEADOR, PLAINTIFF,
NORTH DAKOTA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS AND MONICA MOORE, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Ralph R. Erickson, Chief Judge United States District Court
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
The Court has received a Report and Recommendation from the Honorable Karen K. Klein, United States Magistrate Judge, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636, recommending that Plaintiff David Meador's Complaint be dismissed with prejudice (Doc. #17). Meador has filed an objection to the magistrate judge's Report and Recommendation (Doc. #18). Meador, without any further explanation, asserts he has been "prejudiced and denied due process of the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution" and that he "has suffered a deliberate indifference in medical treatment and such a question is for a jury at trial." Id.
After considering the magistrate judge's Report and Recommendation, conducting a de novo review of Meador's conclusory objections, and reviewing the entire file, the Court finds the magistrate judge's analysis is correct. The Court, therefore, adopts the Report and Recommendation in its entirety. For the reasons set forth therein, Meador's Complaint is DISMISSED with prejudice for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted.
CERTIFICATE OF APPEALABILITY
The Court certifies that an appeal from the dismissal of this action may not be taken in forma pauperis because such an appeal would be frivolous and cannot be taken in good faith.
See Coppedge v. United States, 369 U.S. 438, 444-45 (1962). Furthermore, based upon the entire record before the Court, dismissal of the motion is not debatable, reasonably subject to a different outcome on appeal, or otherwise deserving of further proceedings. Therefore, a certificate of appealability will not be issued by this Court. See Tiedemann v. Benson, 122 F.3d 518, 252 (8th Cir. 1997). If Meador desires further review of his petition, he may request the issuance of a certificate of appealability by a circuit judge of the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals in accordance with Tiedemna v. Benson, 122 F.3d 518, 250-252 (8th Cir. 1997).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
LET JUDGMENT BE ENTERED ACCORDINGLY.
