United States District Court, E.D. Michigan, Southern Division

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
JAMONTY C. WASHINGTON, Defendant, and CHRYSLER, LLC, Garnishee.
ORDER ADOPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE'S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION, AND DENYING DEFENDANT'S REQUESTS FOR A HEARING
DAVID M. LAWSON, District Judge.
Presently before the Court is the report issued on March 4, 2015 by Magistrate Judge Mona K. Majzoub pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b), recommending that the Court deny the defendant's requests for a hearing. Although the report stated that the parties to this action could object to and seek review of the recommendation within fourteen days of service of the report, no objections have been filed thus far. The parties' failure to file objections to the report and recommendation waives any further right to appeal. Smith v. Detroit Fed'n of Teachers Local 231, 829 F.2d 1370, 1373 (6th Cir. 1987). Likewise, the failure to object to the magistrate judge's report releases the Court from its duty to independently review the matter. Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985). However, the Court agrees with the findings and conclusions of the magistrate judge.
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the magistrate judge's report and recommendation [dkt. #49] is ADOPTED.
It is further ORDERED that the defendant's requests for a hearing concerning the plaintiff's garnishment of funds from his employer [dkt. #43, 44] are DENIED.
