IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
DANETTE THOMAS; and
Plaintiff commenced the above-captioned employment discrimination case pro se and
is proceeding in forma pauperis ("IFP"). Upon screening the complaint, the Magistrate
Judge found Plaintiff had arguably stated claims for racial discrimination and retaliation
under Title VII, and directed the United States Marshal to serve Defendant University
Hospital. (Doc. no. 8.) In a companion Report and Recommendation ("R&R"), the
Magistrate Judge recommended dismissal of Defendants
Thomas and Mason because relief
under Title VII is against the employer, not individual employees who violated the Act.
(Doc. no. 6, p. 4.)
Plaintiff has now submitted her objections to the Magistrate Judge's R&R (doc. no.
15), and because the Court adopted the Magistrate Judge's R&R before Plaintiff submitted
her objections, the Court VACATES its earlier adoptidn order (doc. no. 13). Reviewing
Plaintiffs objections, which include numerous medical and employment records, the Court
finds Plaintiffs objections do not change the Court's prior ruling that dismissal of the
individual Defendants is proper.
Court OVERRULES Plaintiffs
objections, ADOPTS the R&R of the Magistrate Judg^ as its opinion and DISMISSES
Defendants Thomas and Mason.
SO ORDERED this^^day of June, 2017, at Augusta, Georgia.
