the plaintiff’s failure to exhaust his administrative remedies as required by the Federal
Tort Claims Act, 28 U.S.C. § 1346. Doc. 24. Although the parties were allowed

file, including the report and recommendation, the court is of the opinion that the
magistrate judge’s report is due to be and is hereby is ADOPTED and the
recommendation is ACCEPTED. Accordingly, to the extent the plaintiff’s claims are
based on the October 24, 2012 Administrative Decision, summary judgment is due to

entitled to judgment in its favor on any such claims. To the extent the plaintiff’s
claims are based on injuries he sustained after the October 24, 2012 Administrative
Decision, those claims are due to be DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE due to
the plaintiff’s failure to exhaust his administrative remedies. A Final Judgment will
