Pro se plaintiff Johnathan Johnson brought this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On December 3, 2014, the Honorable Andrew T. Baxter, United States Magistrate Judge, advised by Report-Recommendation that defendants' motion to dismiss be granted and the complaint be dismissed in its entirety as to all defendants with prejudice. He further recommended that defendants' motion for sanctions and plaintiff's motion for sanctions be denied. Plaintiff timely filed objections to the Report-Recommendation. Defendants responded to plaintiff's objections and seek reconsideration of one portion of the Report-Recommendation.
Based upon a de novo review of the portions of the Report-Recommendation to which the parties objected, the Report-Recommendation is accepted and adopted in all respects. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1).
Therefore, it is
1. Defendants' motion to dismiss is GRANTED and the complaint is DISMISSED in its entirety as to all defendants with PREJUDICE;
2. Defendants' motion for sanctions and plaintiff's motion for sanctions are DENIED; and
3. The Clerk is directed to enter Judgment accordingly, serve a copy of this Decision and Order upon plaintiff in accordance with the Local Rules and close the file.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
