matter is before the Court on the November 29, 2016 Report
and Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge Steven
E. Rau. (Dkt. 162.) No objections to the Report and
Recommendation have been filed in the time period permitted.
the magistrate judge issued the pending Report and
Recommendation, Plaintiff filed two documents styled as
“objections” pursuant to “Rule 46 Fed. R.
Civ. P.” (Dkts. 129, 139.) Federal Rule of Civil
Procedure 46 permits a litigant to object to a court ruling
or order by “stat[ing] the action that [the litigant]
wants the court to take or objects to, along with the grounds
for the request or objection.” Plaintiff's
objections pursuant to Rule 46 do not identify a ruling or
order of this Court to which he objects. Instead,
Plaintiff's objections largely reiterate the requests for
relief sought in Plaintiff's other motions. To the extent
that Plaintiff's Rule 46 objections pertain to issues
that are addressed in the November 29, 2016 Report and
Recommendation, the objections are denied as moot. In all
other respects, Plaintiff's Rule 46 objections are denied
without prejudice because they do not clearly identify either
the order or ruling to which they object or the grounds for
the relief sought or for the objection.

all the files, records and proceedings herein, IT IS
November 29, 2016 Report and Recommendation, (Dkt. 162), is
ADOPTED AS MODIFIED as outlined herein.
