United States District Court, E.D. Arkansas, Jonesboro Division
August 12, 2014
PRENTIS RUPERT, and DERRICK BOGAN, Plaintiffs,
LARRY MILLS, and BECKY HITT, Defendants.
JAMES M. MOODY, Jr., District Judge.
The Court has received a Partial Recommended Disposition ("Recommendation") filed by Magistrate Judge Beth Deere. After careful review of the Recommendation, the timely objections, as well as a de novo review of the record, the Court concludes that the Recommendation should be, and hereby is, approved and adopted as this Court's findings.
Plaintiffs' access-to-courts claims and their claims regarding access to toiletry and hygiene items are DISMISSED, without prejudice. In addition, while Mr. Rupert states in his objection [Docket No.14] that he was not given notice and opportunity for a hearing before being put on lockdown, his claim that he has unlawfully remained on "lockdown" status is DISMISSED, without prejudice, as his assignment to lockdown status appears reasonably related to a legitimate government objective.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
