United States District Court, Western District of Washington, Tacoma
May 12, 2015
HECTOR PEREZ ENRIQUEZ, Plaintiff,
BARBARA MADSEN, et al., Defendants.
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
BENJAMIN H. SETTLE United States District Judge
This matter comes before the Court on the Report and Recommendation (“R&R”) of the Honorable Karen L. Strombom, United States Magistrate Judge (Dkt. 10), and Plaintiff Hector Perez Enriquez’s (“Enriquez”) objections to the R&R (Dkt. 11).
On March 16, 2015, Judge Strombom issued the R&R recommending that the Court dismiss Enriquez’s complaint against the Washington Supreme Court Justices and Court Commissioners without leave to amend. Dkt. 10. Judge Strombom concluded that the proposed defendants are immune from suit, Enriquez does not have standing to litigate on behalf of other inmates, and any claim based on Enriquez’s criminal conviction is barred by Heck v. Humphrey, 512 U.S. 477 (1994).
On April 2, 2015, Enriquez filed numerous objections to the R&R. Dkt. 11. Enriquez not only asserts that his claims have merit, but also asserts that Judge Strombom has a conflict of interest. Id. Enriquez’s objections are completely without merit because they have no basis in law or fact.
Therefore, the Court having considered the R&R, Enriquez’s objections, and the remaining record, does hereby find and order as follows:
(1) The R&R is ADOPTED; and
(2) This action is DISMISSED.
