The Magistrate Judge, however, does not condone the belatedly
filing of a response to the motion to dismiss (Docket Entry 34).
Nevertheless, cases should be tried on their merits and the Magistrate
Judge will consider the response, although again, the Magistrate Judge
notes that in general responses to dismiss are limited to the record and
pending motions to dismiss are not motions for summary judgment.
