This civil rights action was received by the Clerk of Court on June 11, 2009, and was referred to United States Magistrate Judge Susan Paradise Baxter for report and recommendation in accordance with the Magistrates Act, 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1), and Rules 72.1.3 and 72.1.4 of the Local Rules for Magistrates.

It was recommended that the motion be denied as to Defendant Henry, and with respect to his exhaustion and Eleventh Amendment immunity arguments. It was further recommended that the Plaintiff's motion for partial summary judgment [Doc. No. 23] be denied. The parties were allowed fourteen (14) days in which to file objections, and Plaintiff filed objections on August 2, 2010 [Doc. No. 39]. After de novo review of the motion and documents in the case, together with the Report and Recommendations and objections thereto, the following order is entered:
