MEMORANDUM-DECISION AND ORDER
NORMAN A. MORDUE, Sr. District Judge.
In this pro se inmate civil rights action, defendants move (Dkt. No. 33) for dismissal pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 12(b)(6). Plaintiff did not submit opposition to the motion. Upon referral pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) and Local Rule 72.3(c), United States Magistrate Judge Christian F. Hummell issued a Report-Recommendation and Order (Dkt. No. 35) recommending that the motion be granted in part and denied in part.
Neither party has submitted an objection. The docket reflects that plaintiff has twice refused service of the Report-Recommendation and Order (Dkt. No. 36). "As a rule, a party's failure to object to any purported error or omission in a magistrate judge's report waives further judicial review of the point." Cephas v. Nash, 328 F.3d 98, 107 (2d Cir. 2003). A pro se litigant must be given notice of this rule, see Frank v. Johnson, 968 F.2d 298, 299 (2d Cir. 1992); here, however, the Report-Recommendation and Order provides the proper notice, and any failure to receive notice is due to plaintiff's conduct.
The Court has reviewed Magistrate Judge Hummel's Report-Recommendation and Order - which thoroughly addresses this 60-page handwritten complaint - and accepts it in its entirety.
It is therefore
ORDERED that the Report-Recommendation and Order (Dkt. No. 35) is accepted; and it is further
ORDERED that defendants' Rule 12(b)(6) motion (Dkt. No. 33) is granted in part and denied in part as follows:
Dismissal is denied as to:
Plaintiff's Eighth Amendment excessive force claims against defendants James and Lee;
Plaintiff's Eighth Amendment deliberate indifference claims regarding his mental health treatment against defendants Waldron, Berggren, and Savage; and
Plaintiff's Eighth Amendment deliberate indifference claims regarding his medically approved insoles against defendants Boudrieau, and Martin; and
Dismissal is otherwise granted as to all other claims and defendants; and it is further
ORDERED that the following defendants are dismissed from the case: T. LaValley; W. Allan; Menard; E. Bouissey; B. Tucker; D. Amo; Bezio; C. Delutis; J. Delisle; P. Hutti; C. Trudeau; and Susan M. Rocque; and it is further
ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court is directed to serve copies of this Memorandum-Decision and Order in accordance with the Local Rules of the Northern District of New York.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
