The matter was referred to a United States Magistrate Judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 636(b)(1)(B) and Local Rule 302 of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California.

2. Plaintiff's First Amended Complaint, except for the First Amendment retaliation claim against Defendant Zepp shall be dismissed and Defendants California Department of Corrections and C.O. Flowers shall also now be dismissed, with prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
