Plaintiff Kharii W. Brodiebrings this action pro se seeking injunctive relief and compensatory and punitive damages against numerous individuals including former United States Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, Assistant United States Attorney Katherine Worthington, and Bureau of Prisons Director Harley Lappin (collectively, "defendants"). Brodie's claims grow out of the alleged misconduct of the defendants and others before, during, and after his trial and convictions for wire fraud and conspiracy to make false statements to financial institutions to obtain mortgage loans.
Before the Court are the defendants' motion to dismiss [# 34], pursuant to Rules 12 (b)(1), (2), (5), and (6) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and plaintiff's objections to the Report and Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge Deborah A. Robinson, which recommends that the motion be granted.*fn1 Upon consideration of the motion, the Report and
Recommendation of Magistrate Judge Robinson, Brodie's objections to the Report and Recommendation, and the response thereto, the Court concludes that the motion should be granted for the reasons set forth by Magistrate Judge Robinson in her Report and Recommendation.*fn2 In sum, Brodie failed to properly serve these defendants, at a minimum, each defendant is entitled to qualified immunity, and defendants Gonzales and Worthington are entitled to prosecutorial immunity.
Accordingly it is this 31st day of August, 2011, hereby ORDERED that defendants' motion to dismiss [#34] is GRANTED.
