The court DENIES as MOOT defendant's MOTION to Stay of Proceedings Pending Administrative Claims Review Process (Docket No. 95, filed on 5/20/2011).
Magistrate Judge Shaffer advises the parties that he has completed his recommendation for Judge Kreiger in which he will recommend that the plaintiff's MOTION to Remand (Docket No. 92, filed on 5/10/2011) and the defendant's MOTION to Dismiss for Lack of Jurisdiction (Docket No. 100, filed on 6/27/2011) both be dismissed.
