JOHN R. TUNHEIM, District Judge.
Based upon the Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law, and Recommendation by United States Magistrate Judge Franklin L. Noel dated August 8, 2014, all the files and records, and no objections having been filed to the Report and Recommendation,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff's motion for summary judgment [Docket No. 18] is DENIED;
2. Defendants' motion for summary judgment [Docket No. 35] is GRANTED;
3. Plaintiff's claim against Defendants in their individual capacities for violation of the First Amendment's Free Exercise Clause is DISMISSED with prejudice insofar as Kilgore argues that the STG designation prevents him from obtaining central texts, being sent periodicals, and engaging in Parliament activities; and

LET JUDGMENT BE ENTERED ACCORDINGLY.
