Jeffrey K. Thompson v. Thomas A. Quigley

December 1, 2011

JEFFREY K. THOMPSON, PLAINTIFF,
v.
THOMAS A. QUIGLEY, M.D. AND ADVANCED MEDICAL OPTICS, INC. DOING BUSINESS AS TECNIS, DEFENDANTS.



ORDER

This cause comes before the Court on the Report and Recommendation filed by Magistrate Judge Sheri Polster Chappell, on November 15, 2011 (Doc. 4). In the Report and Recommendation, Judge Chappell recommends that Plaintiff Jeffrey K. Thompson's ("Plaintiff") Motion for Leave to Proceed In Forma Pauperis (Doc. 2) be denied. Neither party has objected to the Report and Recommendation and the time to do so has expired.

This Court agrees with the Magistrate Judge in finding that Plaintiff's Complaint fails to state a federal cause of action. Complete diversity between the parties is lacking and the amount in controversy does not exceed the $75,000 federal jurisdictional threshold. Therefore, after careful consideration of the Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge, in conjunction with an independent examination of the court file, the Court is of the opinion that the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation should be adopted, confirmed, and approved in all respects.

Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED and ADJUDGED:

1. The Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge (Doc. 4) is adopted, confirmed, and approved in all respects and is made a part of this order for all purposes, including appellate review.

2. Plaintiff Jeffrey K. Thompson's Motion for Leave to Proceed In Forma Pauperis (Doc. 2) is DENIED, without prejudice..

3. Plaintiff is given leave to file an Amended Complaint within TWENTY-ONE (21) days from the date of this order. Failure to file an Amended Complaint within this time period will result in dismissal of this action without further notice.
