BONNER ROBINETTE, and SHIRLEY ROBINETTE, Plaintiffs,
ORDER ADOPTING AND AFFIRMING JANUARY 10, 2014 RECOMMENDATIONS OF UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
CHRISTINE M. ARGUELLO, District Judge.
This case was referred to United States Magistrate Judge Kristen L. Mix pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636 and Fed.R.Civ.P. 72. (Doc. # 20.) On February 11-18, 2014, Judge Mix issued three Recommendations on a number of motions. (Doc. ## 139, 151, 155, 176, 190, 202.) In those Recommendations, Judge Mix found as follows:
That Motion to Dismiss (Doc # 155) be granted and that Defendants Phil Campbell and Lucia Schirard be dismissed from this lawsuit. (Doc. # 208.)
That Motion to Dismiss (Doc #139) be granted in part and denied in part and that further Motions to Dismiss (Doc ## 151, 176, 190) be granted. (Doc. # 209)
That Motion to Amend (Doc. # 210) be denied and that Plaintiffs not be permitted to amend the Second Amended Complaint to add Randey Robinette as a plaintiff. (Doc # 211)
Both parties filed timely objections to Judge Mix's Recommendation. (Doc. ## 213, 214.) As required by 28 U.S.C. § 636(b), the Court has therefore conducted a de novo review of this matter, including carefully reviewing all relevant pleadings, the Reports and Recommendations, and the parties' Objections to the Reports and Recommendations. Based on this de novo review, the Court concludes that the Magistrate Judge's Reports and Recommendations are correct and are not called into question by the parties' objections.
Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED that Plaintiffs' and Defendants' objections (Doc. ## 213, 214) are OVERRULED, it is
FURTHER ORDERED that the Recommendations of United States Magistrate Judge Kristen L. Mix (Doc. ## 208, 209, 211) are AFFIRMED and ADOPTED as an Order of this Court.

2. the Motion to Dismiss (Doc. #139) is GRANTED IN PART and DENIED IN PART and the other Motions to Dismiss (Doc. ## 151, 176, 190) are GRANTED, which means that all claims against Defendants Schirard, Bobbie Fender, Amber Fender, Schmidt, Hamby, Smith, Harrington, Webb, Phippen, Williams, Burke, Lieb, Lachelt, Westendor, Kosnik, Tebrink, Hutchins, Graeber, and the past and present Board of County Commissioners of La Plata County be dismissed with prejudice except for the following: Claim 1 (§ 1983 due process claim) against Defendants Bobbie Fender, Amber Fender, Schmidt, Hamby, and Smith; and Claim 7 (§ 1983 conspiracy) against Defendants Bobbie Fender, Amber Fender, Schmidt, and Smith;
