KONATA MATTHEWS, PLAINTIFF,
JEFFREY BEARD, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Chief Magistrate Judge Lisa Pupo Lenihan
AND NOW, this 27th day of March, 2013; IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Defendants' Motion to Dismiss (ECF No. 55) is GRANTED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Plaintiff's claims are dismissed with prejudice. Plaintiff is not permitted to further amend his complaint as it is clear that granting him leave to do so would be futile.

Parker, 363 F.3d 229, 235 (3d Cir. 2004) (asserting that where a complaint is vulnerable to dismissal pursuant to 12(b)(6), the district court must offer the opportunity to amend unless it would be inequitable or futile).
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of Court mark this case CLOSED. AND IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that pursuant to Rule 4(a)(1) of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, Plaintiff has thirty (30) days to file a notice of appeal as provided by Rule 3 of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure.
