Date published: Dec 1, 2009

Fact:

Plaintiff Terry Hobbs’s moves for partial summary judgment as to the fair report privilege and opinion (Doc. No. 26) and moves for partial summary judgment as to his status as a public figure (Doc.

Having reviewed the statements of undisputed facts and responses; the arguments set forth in the briefs; and the entire record in this cause, it is clear that there are no issues of material fact in dispute as to Hobbs’s claims against the defendants and that summary judgment is appropriate on those claims. Summary judgment is therefore granted for the defendants and Hobbs’s claims are dismissed with prejudice.

For the reasons set forth herein, there are no issues of material fact in dispute as to Hobbs’s claims against the defendants and summary judgment is appropriate on those claims.

Accordingly, defendants’ motions for summary judgment (Doc. Nos. 38 and 41) are granted; plaintiff’s motion for partial summary judgment (Doc. No. 26) is denied as moot; and plaintiff’s motion for partial summary judgment (Doc. No. 31) is denied. Plaintiff Terry Hobbs’s complaint is dismissed with prejudice and an appropriate judgment will be entered.
