This pro se action brought pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 was referred to the Hon. David E.

Plaintiff has filed objections to the recommendation.
II. STANDARD OF REVIEW
When objections to a magistrate judge's Report and Recommendation are lodged, the Court makes a "de novo determination of those portions of the report or specified proposed findings or recommendations to which objection is made." See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C). After such a review, the Court may "accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the findings or recommendations made by the magistrate judge. The judge may also receive further evidence or recommit the matter to the magistrate judge with instructions." Id.
Having reviewed the record de novo and having considered the issues raised in the objections, this Court has determined to accept and adopt the recommendation of Magistrate Judge Peebles for the reasons stated in the December 12, 2008 Report and Recommendation. Therefore, it is hereby
ORDERED that Defendants' motions for summary judgment [dkt. # 63 & dkt. # 64] are GRANTED and all remaining claims in the action are DISMISSED. The Clerk of the Court is instructed to mark the file in this matter as closed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
