considering the objections and making a de novo review of the record, the Court concludes that the
Proposed Findings and Partial Recommended Disposition should be, and hereby are, approved and
adopted in their entirety as this Court's findings in all respects.1
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that:
Defendants Reed and Smarjesse are DISMISSED without prejudice.
Plaintiff’s claims regarding his grievances are DISMISSED without prejudice.
The Court certifies, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3), that an in forma
pauperis appeal from this Order would not be taken in good faith.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 4th day of January, 2017.

UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
With his objections, Plaintiff argues that Defendant Smarjesse should not be dismissed
because she was informed, by way of an interview request submitted on October 10, 2016, that he
was being bullied. These new allegations fail to show that Smarjesse was aware that he faced a risk
of attack by another inmate and that Smarjesse was deliberately indifferent to his right to be free of
violent attacks by other inmates.
