The pro se plaintiff filed this action pursuant to Title 42, United States Code, Section 1983

and Recommendation (“the Report”) filed by United States Magistrate Judge Kevin F. McDonald,
to whom this case had previously been assigned pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and Local Rule

defendants’ motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim should be granted. No objections to the
Report have been filed.
This Court is charged with conducting a de novo review of any portion of the Magistrate
Judge’s Report to which a specific objection is registered, and may accept, reject, or modify, in
whole or in part, the recommendations contained in that report. 28 U.S.C. § 636. No objections
have been filed to the Report. In the absence of objections to the Report and Recommendation of
the Magistrate Judge, this Court is not required to give any explanation for adopting the
recommendation. See Camby v. Davis, 718 F.2d 198, 199 (4th Cir. 1983).
A review of the record indicates that the Report accurately summarizes this case and the
applicable law. For the reasons articulated by the Magistrate Judge, it is hereby ORDERED that
the Magistrate Judge’s Report is ACCEPTED (Doc. # 36), and defendants’ motion to dismiss is
GRANTED. (Doc. # 20).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
