United States District Court, District of South Carolina
David C. Norton United States District Judge
The above referenced case is before this court upon the magistrate judge's recommendation that the FTCA claims against defendant Federal Bureau of Prisons and any individually named defendant be dismissed, that the Bivens claims against defendants Federal Bureau of Prisons, United States of America, David M. Woodbury, M.D., Timothy R. Wagner, M.D., and Sharon Poston, CEO be dismissed, and that the negligence or medical malpractice claims against defendants Doctor Victor Loranth, Woodbury and Wagner be dismissed. It was further recommended that defendants Federal Bureau of Prisons, Woodbury and Wagner be dismissed without prejudice and without issuance and service of process.
This court is charged with conducting a de novo review of any portion of the magistrate judge's report to which a specific objection is registered, and may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the recommendations contained in that report. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). However, absent prompt objection by a dissatisfied party, it appears that Congress did not intend for the district court to review the factual and legal conclusions of the magistrate judge. Thomas v Arn, 474 U.S. 140 (1985). Additionally, any party who fails to file timely, written objections to the magistrate judge's report pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) waives the right to raise those objections at the appellate court level. United States v. Schronce, 727 F.2d 91 (4th Cir. 1984), cert. denied, 467 U.S. 1208 (1984). No objections have been filed to the magistrate judge’s report and recommendation.
A de novo review of the record indicates that the magistrate judge's report accurately summarizes this case and the applicable law. Accordingly, the magistrate judge’s report and recommendation is AFFIRMED, and the following claims are DISMISSED from the amended complaint: (1) FTCA claims against defendant Federal Bureau of Prisons and any individually named defendant; (2) Bivens claims against defendants Federal Bureau of Prisons, United States of America, Woodbury, Wagner and Poston; and (3) negligence or medical malpractice claims against defendants Loranth, Woodbury and Wagner.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that defendants Federal Bureau of Prisons, Woodbury and Wagner are DISMISSED without prejudice and ...
