CIVIL ACTION NO.: 5:16-cv-73
THE GEO GROUP,INC.; and D.RAY
JAMES CORRECTIONAL FACILITY,
After an independent and de novo review of the entire
record, the undersigned concurs with the Magistrate Judge's
January 3, 2017, Report and Recommendation, dkt. no. 8, to which
Plaintiff has filed Objections, dkt. no. 9.
Judge correctly concluded that Plaintiff cannot bring claims
pursuant to Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of Federal Bureau
of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388 (1971), against a private entity and
Plaintiff's remedy, if any, lies in state court.
Plaintiff's Objections entirely fail to address these grounds
Accordingly, the Court OVERRULES Plaintiff's Objections and
ADOPTS the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation as the
opinion of the Court.
The Court DISMISSES Plaintiff's Complaint
and DENIES Plaintiff leave to appeal in forma pauperis.
The Court DIRECTS the Clerk of Court to enter the
appropriate judgment of dismissal and to CLOSE this case.
SO ORDERED, this
LISA GOp^m WOOD, CHIEF JUDGE
UNITED/states DISTRICT COURT
