ORDER AFFIRMING THE RECOMMENDED DECISION OF THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE
George Z. Singal U.S. District Judge
The United States Magistrate Judge filed with the Court on November 24, 2014, his Recommended Decision (ECF No. 20). Defendant filed his Objection to the Recommended Decision (ECF No. 22) on December 8, 2014.
I have reviewed and considered the Magistrate Judge's Recommended Decision, together with the entire record; I have made a de novo determination of all matters adjudicated by the Magistrate Judge's Recommended Decision; and I concur with the recommendations of the United States Magistrate Judge for the reasons set forth in his Recommended Decision, and determine that no further proceeding is necessary.
1. It is therefore ORDERED that the Recommended Decision of the Magistrate Judge is hereby AFFIRMED.
2. It is ORDERED that: (a) Plaintiff’s claim based on Defendant’s alleged violation of PREA is hereby DISMISSED; and (b) Plaintiff’s claim based on Defendant’s alleged verbal harassment is hereby DISMISSED.
Therefore, Plaintiff’s Complaint (ECF No. 1), as supplemented by his Motion to Amend Complaint (ECF No. 14), now serves as the operative pleading.
