J. LEON HOLMES, District Judge.
The Court has received proposed findings and recommendations from United States Magistrate Judge Jerome T. Kearney. After a review of those proposed findings and recommendations, and the timely objections received thereto, as well as a de novo review of the record, the Court adopts them in their entirety. Accordingly,
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff's complaint against defendants is DISMISSED with prejudice for failure to state a claim.
2. Dismissal of this action constitutes a "strike" within the meaning of the Prison Litigation Reform Act (PLRA), 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g).
3. The Court certifies that an in forma pauperis appeal from an Order and Judgment dismissing this action would not be taken in good faith, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3).
An appropriate Judgment shall accompany this Order.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
