without prejudice to filing a Bivens action. (Doc. 4.) This Findings and Recommendation was
served upon all parties and contained notice that any objections were to be filed within twenty-
one days from the date of service of that order. Over twenty-one days have passed and no party
has filed objections.

assigned the action to the undersigned for all further purposes and proceedings. (Doc. 9.)

IT IS SO ORDERED.
