AND NOW, this 14th day of November, 2013, after Plaintiff, Robert Karl Barger, Jr., filed an action in the above-captioned case, and after Defendants filed a Motion to Dismiss (ECF 26) and after a Report and Recommendation (ECF 36) was filed by the United States Magistrate Judge giving the parties until October 28, 2013, to file written objections thereto, and upon consideration of the objections filed by Plaintiff, and upon independent review of the record, and upon consideration of the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation (ECF 36), which is adopted as the opinion of this Court,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Motion to Dismiss submitted on behalf of Defendants (ECF 26) is GRANTED, and the Amended Complaint is dismissed without prejudice.
