Accordingly, it is ORDERED as follows:
(1) Plaintiff's objections (doc. no. 14) are overruled.
(2) The United States Magistrate Judge's recommendation (doc. no. 8) is adopted.
(3) Plaintiff's claims against defendants Thomas, Jones, Giles, and Mason are dismissed with prejudice, and these defendants are terminated as parties.
(4) Plaintiff's claim against defendant Jenkins is dismissed without prejudice, and this defendant is terminated as a party.
It is further ORDERED that this case is referred back to the magistrate judge.
