United States District Court, M.D. Tennessee, Nashville Division
May 6, 2015
NOREELDEEN ABDULKARIM, Plaintiff,
METROPOLITAN SHERIFF DEPARTMENT, et al., Defendants.
JOHN T. NIXON, Senior District Judge.
Pending before the Court is Plaintiff's Motion to Appeal Denied Motion to Compel (Doc. No. 24), which the Court construes as a motion for review, under Fed.R.Civ.P. 72, of the learned Magistrate Judge's March 18, 2015 Order (Doc. No. 12). Upon review, the Court finds the Order (Doc. No. 12) to be well-founded, finds Plaintiff's motion to be without merit, and, accordingly, DENIES Plaintiff's motion (Doc. No. 24).
Also pending before the Court is Plaintiff's Motion to Appeal Dismissed Case of Cruel and Unusual Punishment. (Doc. No. 13.) The Magistrate Judge issued a Report and Recommendation ("Report") recommending that the motion be denied. (Doc. No. 18 at 2.) Upon de novo review, the Court finds the Report to be well-founded and ADOPTS it in its entirety. Accordingly, the Court DENIES Plaintiff's motion (Doc. No. 13).
Finally, finding no exceptional circumstances that would justify the appointment of counsel in this civil case, the Court DENIES Plaintiff's Motion to Appeal Denied Motion for Counsel (Doc. No. 16). See Lanier v. Bryant, 332 F.3d 999, 1006 (6th Cir. 2003).
It is so ORDERED.
