Objections to R&R which restate original claims need not be addressed

Epps v. Cartledge, No. 1:09-2007-RMG-SVH, 2010 WL 4320331 (D.S.C. Nov. 2, 2010):

A district court may only consider objections to a Report and Recommendation that direct the court to a specific error.  Objections which merely restate word-for-word or rehash the same arguments presented in a petitioner's opposition to a motion for summary judgment do not provide the court with objections to address.  A district court judge need not address the same issues twice.
