Order Granting Defendant's Motion for Summary Judgment - Plaintiff Cordell Wells brought this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. ยง 1983. He alleges that defendant Officer Jonathan Stevens violated his constitutional rights when he falsely stated that Mr. Wells spit on him resulting in charges against Mr. Wells for battery with bodily waste. What remains in this action are Mr. Wells's false arrest and malicious prosecution claims against Officer Stevens. Presently pending before the Court is Officer Stevens's motion for summary judgment. For the reasons explained below, the motion for summary judgment, Dkt. No. 52, is granted. Mr. Wells has not identified a genuine issue of material fact as to his claims in this case and the defendant is entitled to judgment as a matter of law. Therefore, Defendant Officer Stevens's motion for summary judgment, Dkt. No. 52, is GRANTED. Judgment consistent with this Entry shall now issue. (SEE ORDER). Signed by Judge William T. Lawrence on 2/28/2018. (APD)
