HARRY S. MATTICE, Jr., District Judge.
On September 11, 2014, United States Magistrate Judge H. Bruce Guyton filed his Report and Recommendation (Doc. 15) pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 72(b). Magistrate Judge Guyton recommended that Plaintiff's Motion for Summary Judgment (Doc. 11) be denied and that Defendant's Motion for Summary Judgment (Doc. 12) be granted. (Doc. 15 at 21).
The parties have not filed objections to the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation. Nevertheless, the Court has reviewed de novo the record in this matter, and it agrees with the Magistrate Judge's well-reasoned conclusions.
Accordingly, the Court ACCEPTS and ADOPTS Magistrate Judge Guyton's findings of fact, conclusions of law, and recommendations pursuant to § 636(b)(1) and Rule 72(b). Plaintiff's Motion for Summary Judgment (Doc. 11) is DENIED; Defendant's Motion for Summary Judgment (Doc. 12) is GRANTED; and the case is hereby DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE.
