CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY, Defendant. 2:10-CV-590 JCM (LRL) ORDER Presently before the court is the report and recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge Lawrence R. Leavitt. (Doc. #7). Upon reviewing the plaintiff's complaint and amended complaint, the magistrate judge recommends that the case be dismissed with prejudice.
