On October 26, 2010, the Magistrate Judge filed findings and recommendations which were served on Plaintiff and contained noticed that any objections to the findings and recommendations were to be filed within twenty-one days. The twenty-one day period has since expired, and Plaintiff has not filed objections to the findings and recommendations.

Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The findings and recommendations of the magistrate judge filed October 26, 2010, are adopted in full;
2. Plaintiff's Thirteenth Amendment claim is dismissed without leave to amend for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted;
3. This action shall proceed against Defendant only on Plaintiff's Eighth Amendment claim.; and
4. This action is referred to the Magistrate Judge for further proceedings.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
