ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
HENRY T. WINGATE, District Judge.
This matter is before the court pursuant to the Report and Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge Michael T. Parker, which clearly notified the respective parties in the above-styled and numbered cause that failure to file written objections to the findings and recommendations contained therein within fourteen (14) days from the date of filing would bar further appeal in accordance with Title 28 U.S.C. § 636, and this court, finding that there has been no submission of written objections by any party, hereby adopts said Report and Recommendation as the order of this court.
Furthermore, the court grants Medscreens's and Epertox's motions to dismiss [docket no.s 5 and 10], as well Kelly Edgar's and Madison County's motion for summary judgment [docket no. 32] as they relate to the minor plaintiffs. These plaintiffs have failed to amend their complaint within the ten-day period mandated by the court.
