United States District Court, S.D. Georgia, Augusta Division
January 8, 2015
GENE RENARD WILSON, Plaintiff,
LT. JONES, 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 ("R&R"), to which objections have been filed, (doc. no. 49). The Magistrate Judge recommended that Plaintiffs complaint be dismissed because he failed to properly exhaust his administrative remedies. (Doc. no. 45.) In his objections, Plaintiff merely reiterates his arguments that he did in fact exhaust his administrative remedies or, in the alternative, that any failure on his part to exhaust is due to prison staff denying him access to the grievance process either altogether or by denying him steps of the process. (See generally doc. no. 49.) Because the Magistrate Judge thoroughly addressed these arguments (see doc. no. 45, pp. 7-10), Plaintiffs objections do not provide any reason to deviate from the conclusions in the R&R. (See id.) Accordingly, the Court ADOPTS the Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge as its opinion, GRANTS Defendant's motion to dismiss, DISMISSES this civil action, and CLOSES this civil action.
