DECISION AND ORDER
RICHARD J. ARCARA, District Judge.
This employment discrimination case was referred to Magistrate Judge H. Kenneth Schroeder, Jr., pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §636(b)(1). Defendants New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision ("DOCCS") and Ronald W. Moscicki ("Moscicki") each filed motions to dismiss the amended complaint pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(1) and 12(b)(6). (Dkt. Nos. 8 and 18) On July 19, 2013, Magistrate Judge Schroeder filed a Report and Recommendation recommending that defendants' motions to dismiss the complaint be granted and that the action be dismissed. (Dkt. No. 28)
Plaintiff filed objections to the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation. (Dkt. No. 29) Defendants filed responses to plaintiff's objections (Dkt. Nos. 31 and 32) and the Court heard oral argument on October 2, 2013.
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §636(b)(1), this Court must make a de novo determination of those portions of the Report and Recommendation to which objections have been made. Upon a de novo review, and after reviewing the submissions from the parties and hearing oral argument, the Court hereby adopts Magistrate Judge Schroeder's recommendation to grant the motions to dismiss the complaint.
Accordingly, for the reasons set forth in Magistrate Judge Schroeder's Report and Recommendation, defendant DOCCS' and defendant Moscicki's motions to dismiss the complaint are granted and the complaint is dismissed in its entirety. The Clerk of the Court is instructed to close the case.
