DECISION and ORDER
DAVID N. HURD, District Judge.
Pro se plaintiff Tomas Burgos brought this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of Federal Bureau of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388 (1971). On January 13, 2015, the Honorable Randolph F. Treece, United States Magistrate Judge, advised by Report-Recommendation that plaintiff's complaint be dismissed as against defendants Homer, Hummel, and Sharpe because they are absolutely immune from suit and any claims for false imprisonment and false arrest be dismissed for failure to state a claim. No objections to the Report-Recommendation were filed.
Based upon a careful review of the entire file and the recommendations of the Magistrate Judge, the Report-Recommendation is accepted in whole. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1).
Therefore, it is
1. Plaintiff's complaint is DISMISSED in its entirety with prejudice, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915A and 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B)(ii), for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted and for naming defendants who are protected by absolute immunity; and
2. The Clerk is directed to file a judgment accordingly, serve a copy of this Decision and Order and the judgment on plaintiff, and close the file.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
