United States District Court, W.D. Washington, Tacoma
September 3, 2014
COLLINS SYLVESTER WILLIAMS, JR., Plaintiff,
THURSTON COUNTY, et al., Defendants.
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
BENJAMIN H. SETTLE, District Judge.
This matter comes before the Court on the Report and Recommendation ("R&R") of the Honorable J. Richard Creatura, United States Magistrate Judge (Dkt. 7), and Plaintiff Collins Sylvester Williams, Jr.'s ("Williams") objections to the R&R (Dkt. 8).
On July 28, 2014, Judge Creatura issued the R&R recommending that the Court deny Williams's motion to proceed in forma pauperis and dismiss his complaint because it is malicious, frivolous, and fails to state a claim. Dkt. 7. On August 5, 2014, Williams filed objections contending that he is unfamiliar with the law, he is only trying to right what he alleges are civil wrongs, and requesting that the Court allow any of the salvageable claims to proceed. Dkt. 8. Having reviewed Williams's complaint and the R&R, the Court finds that none of Williams's claims are salvageable.
Therefore, the Court having considered the R&R, Williams's objections, and the remaining record, does hereby find and order as follows:
(1) The R&R is ADOPTED;
(2) Williams's motion to proceed in forma pauperis is DENIED;
(3) Williams's complaint is DISMISSED; and
(4) The Clerk shall close this case.
