United States District Court, S.D. Georgia, Augusta Division
July 14, 2014
MELVIN MARIGNE, Plaintiff,
THE UNITED STATES ATTORNEY FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF GEORGIA, Defendant.
J. RANDAL HALL, District Judge.
After a careful, de novo review of the file, the Court concurs with the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation, to which objections have been filed. (Doc. nos. 10, 11.) Plaintiff does not offer any new information, evidence, or argument that warrants a deviation from the Magistrate Judge's recommendation. In addition to the reasons for dismissal stated in the Report and Recommendation, the Court notes that the United States Attorney is not a proper defendant for a medical malpractice claim under the Federal Tort Claims Act. Accordingly, the Court ADOPTS the Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge as its opinion, DISMISSES Plaintiffs complaint for failure to state a claim, and CLOSES this civil action.
