This matter is before the Court on a Report and Recommendation (“R&R”) issued by the
Honorable Tony N. Leung, United States Magistrate Judge, on January 6, 2017. (Dkt. No. 27.)
The R&R recommends dismissing this action because sovereign and qualified immunity bars
certain claims, and Plaintiffs failed to state the remaining claims. (See id.) Plaintiffs objected to
the R&R’s analysis with respect to each claim. (See Dkt. No. 28.) Defendants responded in
support of the R&R’s recommended disposition. (See Dkt. No. 29.) The Court conducted a de
novo review of the record. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(3); D. Minn. LR
72.2(b)(3). After reviewing the R&R, the parties’ arguments, and the record, the Court agrees
with the R&R’s reasoning and recommended disposition.
