DECISION AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court following a Report-Recommendation filed on September 19, 2006, by the Honorable David R. Homer, United States Magistrate Judge, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and L.R. 72.3(c) of the Northern District of New York. Report-Rec. (Dkt. No. 75).

R. CIV. P. 72(b), in compliance with L.R. 72.1. In the interval of at least fifteen days since the Magistrate Judge filed the subject Report-Recommendation, no objections to it have been raised. Furthermore, after examining the record, the Court has determined that the Report-Recommendation is not subject to attack for plain error or manifest injustice.
Accordingly, it is hereby
ORDERED, that the Report-Recommendation (Dkt. No. 75) is APPROVED and ADOPTED in its ENTIRETY; and it is further
ORDERED, that Defendants' Motion for summary judgment (Dkt No. 66) is GRANTED; and it is further
ORDERED, that the complaint is DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE as to Defendant State of New York and all John Doe Defendants; and it is further
ORDERED, that the Clerk serve a copy of this Order on all parties.
