recommending the plaintiff’s Eighth Amendment failure-to-protect claims against

summary judgment on the plaintiff’s Eighth Amendment medical claims filed by

recommendation is ACCEPTED. The plaintiff’s Eighth Amendment failure-toprotect claims against Correctional Officer Newcomb are due to be DISMISSED

regarding the plaintiff’s Eighth Amendment medical claims against Captain Carl
