DANIEL P. JORDAN, III, District Judge.
This cause is before the Court on two Reports and Recommendations [57, 59] entered by Magistrate Judge F. Keith Ball. Plaintiff James Winding has filed Objections [64, 65]. Winding has also filed additional motions [61, 62, 63, 66], since the entry of the Reports and Recommendations, which are also addressed in this Order.
I. Motion to Continue Case In Forma Pauperis Status
Winding initially filed this suit in state court, and Defendants removed the case and paid the federal filing fee. Following removal, Winding moved to prosecute this action in forma pauperis , which Judge Ball recommended  denying. On December 18, 2013, Winding filed a "Motion to Supplement to Arrest of Report and Recommendation" , in which he points out that Magistrate Judge Roper held in another of Winding's cases that his motion to proceed in forma pauperis was moot because Defendants had paid the filing fee upon removal to federal court. See Order , Winding v. Vincent, Civil Action No. 3:13cv425 TSL-JMR. The Court construes this filing as Winding's request to withdraw his motion to proceed in forma pauperis  in this action. His request to withdraw  is granted. Alternatively, the Court agrees that the motion can be considered moot.
II. Motions for Partial Summary Judgment and Motion to Dismiss
Second, Judge Ball recommended  that Winding's motions for partial summary judgment [16, 37] be denied. Judge Ball also suggested granting the motion to dismiss  filed by Defendants Lard, Prude, Bryant, Rice, Ovalle, Shaw, and Hollie (the MTC Defendants). These Defendants moved to dismiss Winding's claims for failure to exhaust his administrative remedies and to dismiss Nigel McClain's allegations based on his failure to state a claim.
In addition to his "Motion to Object"  that addressed denial of his in forma pauperis request, Winding also filed a "Motion to Supplement to Motion to Object to Report and Recommendation and Respond to Order Document (58)" . The Court construes this filing  as a supplement to his Objection  that encompasses his response to Judge Ball's second Report and Recommendation . In this filing, Winding complains that Defendants are refusing to allow him and co-plaintiff Nigel McClain to reside in the same cell, despite a settlement agreement between the parties.
As this Court has explained before, it does not interfere with prison policy concerning housing of inmates. See generally Janali v. Correction Corp. of America, No. 5:11cv119 KS-MTP, 2013 WL 6536373, at *7 (S.D.Miss. Dec. 13, 2013) ("Also, courts must give deference to the prison officials responsible for creating and establishing policies and maintaining order and security.") (citation omitted); Anderson v. Rice, No. 4:12cv64 HTW-LRA, 2013 WL 6230115, at *2 (S.D.Miss. Nov. 30, 2013) ("Moreover, prison administrators... should be accorded wide-ranging deference in the adoption and execution of policies and practices that in their judgment are needed to preserve internal order and discipline and to maintain institutional security.'") (quoting Whitley v. Albers, 475 U.S. 312, 321-22 (1986)) (other citation omitted); see also Bell v. Wolfish, 441 U.S. 520 (1979); Royal v. Clark, 447 F.2d 501, 501-02 (5th Cir. 1971) ("Federal Courts will not interfere in the administration of prisons absent an abuse of the wide discretion allowed prison officials in maintaining order and discipline." (citations omitted)). The Objection is not well-taken.
In sum, the Court adopts the Report and Recommendation  of Judge Ball; denies Winding's motions for partial summary judgment [16, 37]; and grants Defendants' motion to dismiss . In addition, Defendants' motions [39, 46] to strike Winding's motions for summary judgment may be terminated.
III. Additional Motions
As mentioned, Winding has filed numerous motions since entry of the Reports and Recommendations.
- Winding attached to his Objection a "Motion for Re-Newal" asking the Court, without elaboration, to reconsider Judge Ball's Order  denying or terminating seventeen (17) motions [24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 32, 33, 34, 36, 9, 10, 12, 15, 20, 21, 22, 23]. This request is denied. As explained by Judge Ball , some of these motions were attempts to assert new claims that should be pursued in separate lawsuits, while other motions sought no particular relief from the Court.
- Winding's motions for injunctive relief [56, 63] asking the Court to direct EMCF to allow him to invoke the buddy system at EMCF are denied. Again, the Court does not interfere with prison policy concerning housing of inmates.
- Likewise, Winding's "Motion to Overcome Defense Motion to Dismiss due to Civil Conspiracy"  is denied. To this motion, he attaches a letter from his case manager dated July 12, 2013, memorializing Winding's request to be housed with Nigel McClain in exchange for dismissal of his pending lawsuits. Again, the Court does not interfere with prison policy concerning housing of inmates. Moreover, this filing does not evidence a civil conspiracy, does not overcome ...
