The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lawrence J. O'Neill United States District Judge
ORDER RE: FINDINGS & RECOMMENDATIONS (#60)
Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding pro se in this civil rights action. The matter was referred to a United States Magistrate Judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) and Local Rule 72-302.
On February 26, 2009, findings and recommendations were entered, recommending dismissal of this action for Plaintiff's failure to exhaust his available administrative remedies prior to filing suit. On April 9, 2009, plaintiff filed objections to the findings and recommendations.
In accordance with the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 636 (b)(1)(B) and Local Rule 73-305, this court has conducted a de novo review of this case. Having carefully reviewed the entire file, the court finds the findings and recommendations to be supported by the record and proper analysis.
Accordingly, THE COURT HEREBY ORDERS that:
1. The Findings and Recommendations issued by the Magistrate Judge on February 26, 2009, are adopted in full; and
2. This action is dismissed without prejudice for failure to exhaust available administrative remedies prior to filing suit. The Clerk is directed to close this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
