After reviewing the record de novo, the Court finds that Judge Bryant’s Report and Recommendation should be adopted in its entirety. Accordingly, the Court hereby adopts Judge Bryant’s Report and Recommendation, and Separate Defendant Motion to Dismiss is GRANTED. Plaintiff’s claims against Tom Cooper are DISMISSED. IT IS SO ORDERED, this 28th day of November, 2012. /s/ Susan O. Hickey Hon. Susan O. Hickey United States District Judge
