J. GARVAN MURTHA, District Judge.
The Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation was filed September 23, 2013. (Doc. 17.) After de novo review and absent objection, the Report and Recommendation is AFFIRMED, APPROVED and ADOPTED. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1).
Defendants Engels and Pressey's Motion to Dismiss (Doc. 13) is DENIED as moot, and because they are not identified as parties in the amended complaint (Doc. 15), they shall be terminated as Defendants.
Defendant Mack's Motion to Dismiss (Doc. 6) is GRANTED, insofar as the motion seeks dismissal of Plaintiff's § 1983 and Title 18 claims. The motion is DENIED with respect to Plaintiff's state law claims, and he shall be afforded an opportunity to amend his complaint. If he chooses to file an amended pleading, he shall do so on or before November 29, 2013. The pleading must be entitled "Second Amended Complaint" and include a jurisdictional statement. The Second Amended Complaint will replace all prior complaints, thereby invalidating the original Complaint (Doc. 5) and the subsequent "Verified Complaint" (Doc. 15). Failure to file a timely Second Amended Complaint, or to allege facts establishing diversity jurisdiction, may result in dismissal of this case without prejudice.
This matter is returned to Magistrate Judge John M. Conroy for further proceedings.
