REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
By: Norman K. Moon
United States District Judge
Randall J. Keystone, a Virginia inmate proceeding pro se, filed a civil rights action
pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, alleging that the defendants have been deliberately indifferent to a
substantial risk of serious harm by subjecting him to bad air in his cell. Defendants filed a
motion for summary judgment and I referred the matter to United States Magistrate Judge
Pamela Meade Sargent for a Report and Recommendation pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B).

properly exhausted are barred by the statute of limitations. Accordingly, the Magistrate Judge
recommends that I grant defendants’ motion for summary judgment. Neither party has filed

Report and Recommendation (Docket No. 92) is ADOPTED in its entirety; defendants’ motion
for summary judgment (Docket No. 77) is GRANTED; and this matter is STRICKEN from the
active docket of the court.1
