GRANTING DEFENDANTS= MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT,
AND DISMISSING THE CASE WITH PREJUDICE
This case was filed as a 42 U.S.C. ' 1983 action. Plaintiff is proceeding pro se. The

in accordance with 28 U.S.C. ' 636 and Local Civil Rule 73.02 for the District of South Carolina.
The Magistrate Judge makes only a recommendation to this Court. The recommendation
has no presumptive weight. The responsibility to make a final determination remains with the
Court. Mathews v. Weber, 423 U.S. 261, 270 (1976). The Court is charged with making a de
novo determination of those portions of the Report to which specific objection is made, and the
Court may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the recommendation of the Magistrate
Judge or recommit the matter with instructions. 28 U.S.C. ' 636(b)(1).
The Magistrate Judge filed the Report on March 9, 2017, and the Clerk of Court entered
Plaintiff=s motion to dismiss the case, in lieu of his objections, on March 23, 2017.

in Darlington [who] has a new jail warden [who] easily took me off their poor under nutritional
vegetarian diet.@ Id. In light of Plaintiff=s motion to dismiss his case, the Court concludes
Plaintiff has no objections to the Report.
After a thorough review of the Report and the record in this case pursuant to the standard
set forth above, the Court adopts the Report and incorporates it herein. Therefore, it is the
judgment of this Court Defendants= motion for summary judgment is GRANTED and this case is
DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE. Plaintiff=s motion to dismiss is thus RENDERED MOOT.
