RONALD REEVES (#341402)
JAMES LeBLANC, ET AL
SUPPLEMENTAL MAGISTRATE JUDGE'S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
RICHARD L. BOURGEOIS, Jr., Magistrate Judge.
It has come to the Court's attention that, whereas the initial Magistrate Judge's Report in this case, dated October 23, 2014 (R. Doc. 5), concluded that the plaintiff's claims asserted against defendants Troy Poret and Jimmy Cruze should be dismissed, the Report's final Recommendation did not address the liability of these defendants. Specifically, the Court found in the Report that the plaintiff's claim asserted against these individuals under 42 U.S.C. 1983 - that they improperly "revoked his previously-granted hobbycraft privileges and ordered him to send all hobbycraft tools and materials home" - was "without constitutional merit and should be dismissed." See R. Doc. 5 at p. 5-6. In addition, the Court found that the plaintiff's claim asserted against these defendants arising under the Americans With Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 12101, et seq., did not "adequately assert that these defendants engaged in discrimination against the plaintiff by reason of his disability" as required by that Act. See id. at p. 9. Accordingly, the referenced Magistrate Judge's Report determined that the plaintiff's claims against defendants Poret and Cruze should be dismissed, and it was mere inadvertence that resulted in these defendants not being addressed in the final Recommendation. Based upon the Court's findings and conclusions in the referenced Magistrate Judge' Report, it is appropriate that a Supplemental Report be issued, recommending that the plaintiff's claims asserted against defendants Troy Poret and Jimmy Cruze be dismissed, with prejudice.
It is recommended that the plaintiff's claims asserted against defendants Troy Poret and Jimmy Cruze be dismissed, with prejudice, as legally frivolous and for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 1915(e) and 1915A, based upon the findings and conclusions contained in the Magistrate Judge's Report dated October 23, 2014 (R. Doc. 5), and that these defendants be dismissed from this proceeding.
