MIRANDA M. DU, UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
Before the Court is the Report and Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge Valerie P. Cooke (dkt. no. 16) (“R&R”) regarding Plaintiff Jeramie Carlsson’s application to proceed in forma pauperis (dkt. no. 1) and pro se civil rights complaint (dkt. no. 1-1). Plaintiff filed an objection to the R&R (“Objection”) (dkt. no. 8).
This Court “may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the findings or recommendations made by the magistrate judge.” 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). Where a party timely objects to a magistrate judge’s report and recommendation, then the court is required to “make a de novo determination of those portions of the [report and recommendation] to which objection is made.” 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1).
The Court has engaged in a de novo review to determine whether to adopt Magistrate Judge Cooke’s R&R. The Court agrees with the Magistrate Judge’s determination that Counts I and II should be dismissed with prejudice.

Plaintiff is permitted to maintain this action to conclusion without the necessity of prepayment of fees or costs or the giving of security therefor. This order granting in forma pauperis dstus shall not extend to the issuance of subpoenas at government expense.
It is further ordered that, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915, as amended by the Prisoner Litigation Reform Act of 1996, the Nevada Department of Corrections shall pay to the Clerk of the United States District Court, District of Nevada, 20% of the preceding month’s deposits to the account of Jeramie Carlsson, Inmate No. 87009 (in months that the account exceeds $10.00) until the full $350 filing fee has been paid for this action. The Clerk shall send a copy of this order to the attention of the Chief of Inmate Services for the Nevada Department of Corrections, P.O. Box 7011, Carson City, NV 89702.
It is further ordered that, even if this action is dismissed, or is otherwise unsuccessful, the full filing fee shall still be due, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915, as amended by the Prisoner Litigation Reform Act of 1996.
It is further ordered that the Clerk shall detach and file the complaint (dkt. no. 1 -1).
It is further ordered that count 1 of the complaint shall proceed.
It is further ordered that counts II and III are dismissed with prejudice and without leave to amend.
