Plaintiff, Eon Shepherd, brought this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. In a Report Recommendation dated July 18, 2008, the Honorable David R. Homer, United States Magistrate Judge, recommended that defendants' motion for judgment on the pleadings be granted as to defendants Goord, Gidrich, Wright, VanBuren, Bennette, Ericson, Kremer, and Colvin, and those defendants should be dismissed from this action; and denied in all respects as to defendants Tweed and Post; and the Second Amended Complaint be dismissed without prejudice as to defendant Riley. Lengthy objections to the Report Recommendation have been filed by the plaintiff.
Based upon a de novo review of the portions of the Report-Recommendation to which the plaintiff has objected, the Report-Recommendation is accepted and adopted. See 28 U.S.C. 636(b)(1).
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that
1. Defendants' motion for judgment on the pleadings is GRANTED as to defendants Glen S. Goord, Superintendent Bennette, Sergeant Ericson, Superintendent Gidrich, Dr. Lester Wright, Steven VanBuren, J. Colvin, and Sergeant J. Kremer;
