Richard Mark Gergel United States District Court Judge
This matter comes before the Court on the Report and Recommendation ("R&R") of the Magistrate Judge recommending that Plaintiffs pro se action be summarily dismissed without prejudice because the federal court lacks jurisdiction over the asserted claims.

Plaintiff was advised that he had a right to file written objections to the R & R within 14 days of service of the R & R and a failure to file written objections could resuh in limited review by the District Court and a waiver of the right to appeal the judgment of the District Court. (Dkt. No. 13 at 6). Plaintiff filed no timely written objections.
The Magistrate Judge makes only a recommendation to this Court. The recommendation has no presumptive weight, and the responsibility for making a final determination remains with this Court. Mathews

After review of the record and the R&R, the Court finds the Magistrate Judge applied sound legal principles to the facts of this case and therefore agrees with and adopts the R&R as the order of the Court. (Dkt. No. 13). ...
