MEMORANDUM-DECISION and ORDER
Currently before the Court, in this pro se prisoner civil rights action filed by Thomas Dorsey ("Plaintiff") against the five above-named correctional employees ("Defendants"), are the following: (1) Defendants' motion to compel Plaintiff's attendance at his deposition and for the imposition of monetary sanctions against Plaintiff for previously failing to appear for his deposition, pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 37(b)(2)(C) and 37(d)(3) (Dkt. No. 22); (2) Plaintiff's response to the motion, advising the Court that he no longer wishes to pursue this action (Dkt. No. 25); and (3) United States Magistrate Judge Therese Wiley Dancks' Report-Recommendation recommending that Defendants' motion be denied as moot and that Plaintiff's Complaint be dismissed in its entirety with prejudice (Dkt. No. 28). Plaintiff has not filed an Objection to the Report-Recommendation, and the deadline to do so has expired. Based on a clear-error review of the Report-Recommendation, the Court accepts and adopts the Report-Recommendation in its entirety for the reasons stated therein. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b).
ACCORDINGLY, it is
ORDERED that Magistrate Judge Dancks' Report-Recommendation (Dkt. No. 28) is ACCEPTED and ADOPTED in its entirety; and it is further
ORDERED that Defendants' motion to compel and for sanctions (Dkt. No. 22) is DENIED as moot; and it is further
ORDERED that Plaintiff's Complaint (Dkt. No. 1) is DISMISSED with prejudice. The Clerk's Office is directed to close this action.
The Court hereby certifies, for purposes of 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3), that any appeal taken from this Decision and Order would not be taken in good faith.
