This matter comes before the Court following a Report-Recommendation filed on July 28, 2009, by the Honorable David R.

It is the duty of this Court to "make a de novo determination of those portions of the report or specified proposed findings or recommendations to which objection is made." 28 U.S.C. § 636(b). "A [district] judge... may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the findings or recommendations made by the magistrate judge." Id. This Court has considered the objections and has undertaken a de novo review of the record and has determined that the Report-Recommendation should be approved for the reasons stated therein.

Accordingly, it is hereby

ORDERED, that the Report-Recommendation (Dkt. No. 30) is APPROVED and ADOPTED in its ENTIRETY; and it is further

ORDERED, that Defendants' Motion for summary judgment (Dkt. No. 25) is GRANTED in all respects and that judgment is entered in favor of all Defendants on all claims; and it is further
