UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
May 22, 2012
DAWN MARIE BALL,
DR. FAMIGLIO, ET AL., DEFENDANTS
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Chief Judge Kane
(Magistrate Judge Carlson)
THE BACKGROUND OF THIS ORDER IS AS FOLLOWS:
On August 15, 2011, Defendants filed separate motions for summary judgment against Plaintiff Dawn Marie Ball. (Doc. Nos. 177, 182.) On November 21, 2011, Magistrate Judge Martin Carlson issued a Report and Recommendation in which he recommends that the motions for summary judgment be granted and this matter be closed for Plaintiff's failure to exhaust her administrative remedies. (Doc. No. 216.) Plaintiff responded to the Report and Recommendation by largely rehashing issues she had raised in opposition to the motion for summary judgment. (Doc. No. 218.) The Court has conducted a de novo review of the Report and Recommendation and Plaintiff's objections thereto, and agrees with Judge Carlson that Plaintiff's claims fail as a result of her failure to exhaust her administrative remedies.
ACCORDINGLY, on this 22nd day of May 2012, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT the Report and Recommendation (Doc. No. 216) is ADOPTED and Defendants' motions for summary judgment (Doc. Nos. 177, 182) are GRANTED. The Clerk of Court is directed to enter judgment in favor of all Defendants and close the case.
