Shadreck Kifayatuthelezi appeals the district court's order accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge, granting summary judgment to the Appellees, and dismissing Kifayatuthelezi's 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (2018) civil rights claims and his claims under the South Carolina Tort Claims Act, S.C. Code Ann. §§ 15-78-10 to 15-78-220. We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. Kifayatuthelezi v. S.C. Dep't of Corr., No. 8:17-cv-03139-TLW, 2019 WL 4671159 (D.S.C. Sept. 25, 2019). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
