United States District Court, D. Oregon
April 10, 2014
STEVEN MICHAEL WILLIAMS, Plaintiff,
OREGON STATE HOSPITAL, et al., Defendants.
OPINION AND ORDER
MICHAEL J. McSHANE, District Judge.
Plaintiff, pro se, brings this action seeking damages for negligence against Oregon State Hospital and various staff members. Plaintiff alleges that he was assaulted by a fellow patient while being treated at Oregon State Hospital. Judge Thomas M. Coffin issued a Findings and Recommendation (F & R) on December 18, 2013, recommending that plaintiff's complaint be dismissed because of claim preclusion. The matter is now before this Court. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B); Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b).
This Court reviews all portions of the F & R subject to objection de novo. 28 USC § 636(b)(1); McDonnell Douglas Corp. v. Commodore Bus. Machines Inc., 656 F.2d 1309, 1313 (9th Cir. 1981). Plaintiff timely filed objections to the F & R. Upon review, this Court finds no error in Judge Coffin's F & R, ECF No. 7. Plaintiff's negligence claim was previously dismissed with prejudice. See Williams v. Oregon State Hosp., Case No. 13-cv-00944-TC, 2013 WL 6576194, at *1, *3 (Dec. 12, 2013).
This Court ADOPTS Judge Coffin's F & R, ECF No. 7, in full. Plaintiff Williams's complaint is DISMISSED with prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
