United States District Court, D. South Carolina
June 25, 2014
Christopher Ford, Plaintiff,
Director Jon Ozmint; Warden Wayne McCabe; and Nurse Practitioner E. Holcomb, Defendants.
JOSEPH F. ANDERSON, Jr., District Judge.
The pro se plaintiff, Christopher Ford, is an inmate with the South Carolina Department of Corrections. He brings this action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 contending that the defendants were deliberately indifferent to his serious medical needs.
The Magistrate Judge assigned to this action has prepared a thorough Report and Recommendation wherein she suggests that this court should grant the defendants' motion for summary judgment. The Report sets forth in detail the relevant facts and standards of law on this matter, and the court incorporates such without a recitation and without a hearing.
The parties were advised of their right to file objections to the Report and Recommendation which was docketed on May 29, 2014. Neither party filed objections. In the absence of specific objections to the Report of the Magistrate Judge, this court is not required to give any explanation for adopting the recommendation. See Camby v. Davis, 718 F.2d 198, 199 (4th Cir. 1983).
After a careful review of the record, the applicable law, and the Report and Recommendation, the court adopts the Magistrate Judge's recommendation and incorporates the Report herein by reference. Accordingly, the defendants' motion for summary judgment (ECF No. 29) is granted.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
