PLAINTIFF’S STATE LAW CLAIMS
AGAINST DEFENDANT BAIRAMIAN
(Doc. No. 80, 104.)
Michael Scott McRae (“Plaintiff”) is a former federal prisoner proceeding pro se and in
forma pauperis with this civil rights action pursuant to Bivens vs. Six Unknown Agents, 403
U.S. 388 (1971). The matter was referred to a United States Magistrate Judge pursuant to 28
U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) and Local Rule 302.
On April 28, 2021, findings and recommendations were entered by the assigned
magistrate judge, recommending that defendant Dr. Bairamian’s motion for summary judgment,
filed on October 23, 2020, be granted. (Doc. No. 104.) The parties were granted fourteen days
in which to file objections to the findings and recommendations. (Id.) The fourteen-day deadline
has now expired, and no objections have been filed.
In accordance with the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 636 (b)(1)(B) and Local Rule 304, this
court has conducted a de novo review of this case. Having carefully reviewed the entire file, the
court finds the findings and recommendations to be supported by the record and proper analysis.
The findings and recommendations entered on April 28, 2021, are adopted in full;
The motion for summary judgment filed by defendant Dr. Bairamian on October
23, 2020, is granted as to plaintiff’s Bivens claims under the Eighth Amendment;
The court declines to exercise supplemental jurisdiction over plaintiff’s state law
claims brought against defendant Bairamian by plaintiff;
Summary judgment is granted to defendant Dr. Bairamian;
This case now proceeds only against defendants David Betz and Kevin Cuong
Nguyen on plaintiff’s Bivens claims for inadequate medical care and state law
claims for medical malpractice and medical battery;
this action on the court’s docket; and
The Clerk of Court is directed to reflect defendant Dr. Bairamian’s dismissal from
This case is referred back to the magistrate judge for further proceedings.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
