v.
LONNIE GOODRICH DEFENDANT.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gary A. Fenner, Judge United States District Court

ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION

Now before the Court is pro se Defendant Lonnie Goodrich's ("Defendant") Motion for Jurisdictional Challenge to Prosecution/Plaintiff and to the Court by Special Appearance. (Doc. # 9).
