The opinion of the court was delivered by: Scullin, Senior Judge
Plaintiff commenced this action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, 1985, alleging that Defendants violated his constitutional rights. See Dkt. No. 64, Amended Complaint. On November 12, 2010, Defendants filed a motion for summary judgment. See Dkt. No. 119. Plaintiff did not file any papers in opposition to that motion. In a Report-Recommendation and Order dated July 13, 2011, Magistrate Judge Homer recommended that the Court grant Defendants' motion for summary judgment in its entirety and enter judgment in favor of Defendants on all claims. See Dkt. No. 121 at 35. Plaintiff did not file any objections to these recommendations.
When a party does not object to a magistrate judge's report-recommendation, the court reviews that report-recommendation for clear error or manifest injustice. See Linares v. Mahunik, No. 9:05-CV-625, 2009 WL 3165660, *10 (N.D.N.Y. July 16, 2009) (citation and footnote omitted). After conducting this review, "the Court may 'accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the . . . recommendations made by the magistrate judge.'" Id. (quoting 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C)).
The Court has reviewed Magistrate Judge Homer's July 13, 2011 Report-Recommendation and Order for clear error and manifest injustice; and, finding none, the Court hereby ORDERS that Magistrate Judge Homer's July 13, 2011 Report-Recommendation and Order is ACCEPTED in its entirety for the reasons stated therein; and the Court further ORDERS that Defendants' motion for summary judgment is GRANTED in its entirety; and the Court further ORDERS that Plaintiff's federal claims are DISMISSED with prejudice; and the Court further ORDERS that Plaintiff's state-law claims are DISMISSED without prejudice pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1367; and the Court further ORDERS that the Clerk of the Court shall enter judgment in favor of Defendants and close this case; and the Court further ORDERS that the Clerk of the Court shall serve a copy of this Order on the parties in accordance with the Local Rules.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
