DECISION and ORDER
GLENN T. SUDDABY, District Judge.
Currently before the Court, in this pro se prisoner civil rights action filed by Scott M. Thorpe ("Plaintiff") against the three above-captioned correctional employees of Washington County Jail ("Defendants"), are Defendants' motion for summary judgment and United States Magistrate Judge Andrew T. Baxter's Report-Recommendation recommending that Defendants' motion be granted and that Plaintiff's Amended Complaint be dismissed. (Dkt. Nos. 25, 34.) Plaintiff has filed no Objection to the Report-Recommendation, and the deadline by which to do so has expired. ( See generally Docket Sheet.) After carefully reviewing the relevant papers herein, including Magistrate Judge Baxter's thorough Report-Recommendation, the Court can find no clear-error in the Report-Recommendation. Magistrate Judge Baxter employed the proper standards, accurately recited the facts, and reasonably applied the law to those facts. As a result, his Report-Recommendation is accepted and adopted in its entirety, Defendants' motion is granted, and Plaintiff's Amended Complaint is dismissed.
ACCORDINGLY, it is
ORDERED that Magistrate Judge Baxter's Report-Recommendation (Dkt. No. 34) is ACCEPTED and ADOPTED in its entirety; and it is further
ORDERED that Defendants' motion for summary judgment (Dkt. No. 25) is GRANTED; and it is further
ORDERED that Plaintiff's Amended Complaint (Dkt. No. 7) is DISMISSED.
