SIM LAKE, District Judge.
The court has reviewed the Magistrate Judge's Memorandum and Recommendation dated October 29, 2013, the objections thereto, and the response to the objections.
Defendants argued in their objections that the court should not adopt the Magistrate Judge's recommendation with regard to her decision not to consider Defendants' arguments in favor of dismissing Plaintiff's due process claim because of Defendants' failure to raise the arguments until their reply brief. In his response, Plaintiff agreed with Defendants that the due process claim is not viable under Fifth Circuit law and should be dismissed.
Therefore, the court SUSTAINS Defendants' objections with regard to the due process claim and grants summary judgment on that claim. In all other respects, the Memorandum and Recommendation dated October 29, 2013, is hereby ADOPTED by this court.
