United States District Court, E.D. Arkansas, Eastern Division
April 27, 2015
JOSE ARTEAGA RODRIGUEZ, Reg. #XXXXX-XXX, Plaintiff,
ANTHONY HAYNES, Warden, Forrest City Correctional Complex; and DOES, Forrest City Health Service Employees and Servants, 1-100, Defendants.
KRISTINE G. BAKER, District Judge.
The Court has reviewed the Recommended Partial Disposition submitted by United States Magistrate Judge J. Thomas Ray (Dkt. No. 29) and the filed objections (Dkt. No. 31). After carefully considering these documents and making a de novo review of the record in this case, the Court concludes that the Recommended Partial Disposition should be, and hereby is, approved and adopted in its entirety as this Court's findings in all respects. The Court notes that, although plaintiff Jose Arteaga Rodriguez claims he exhausted all the administrative remedies available to him, he provides no evidence that he appropriately and timely appealed the Regional Director's decision, which is the final required step of the Federal Correctional Institution located in Forrest City, Arkansas, and thus a requirement for exhaustion.
It is therefore ordered that:
1. Defendant Anthony Haynes's motion to dismiss, or in the alternative, motion for summary judgment is granted (Dkt. No. 15), and the claims raised against him are dismissed without prejudice.
2. It is certified, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3), that an in forma pauperis appeal from this Order would not be taken in good faith.
