ORDER: The Magistrate Judge's 36 Report and Recommendation is AFFIRMED, APPROVED and ADOPTED. The 23 Motion to Dismiss filed on behalf of defendants Keith Tallon and Dominic Damato is GRANTED. Because jurisdiction over plaintiffs negligence claims lies exclusively in state court, those claims are DISMISSED without prejudice. Because plaintiff has failed to allege specific facts to support a constitutional claim against the unknown defendants, those claims are DISMISSED without prejudice. It is further certified that any appeal taken in forma pauperis from this Order would not be taken in good faith because such an appeal would be frivolous. Signed by Judge J. Garvan Murtha on 2/12/2009. (wjf)
