Massey v. Ojaniit, 13-1460

In a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 action alleging that defendant-officers had fabricated evidence that led to plaintiff's arrest, convictions, and nearly-twelve-year incarceration before he was released when the convictions were stricken: 1) judgments in favor of defendant Ojaniit and Esposito are affirmed, where, for all of plaintiff's asserted claims, plaintiff has failed to state claims upon which relief can be granted; and 2) the appeal as to defendant Ledford is dismissed, where defendant unequivocally advised the district court that he did not object to the magistrate's report insofar as the magistrate judge recommended the granting of defendant Ledford's motion for judgment on the pleadings pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(c).
