United States District Court, E.D. Michigan, Southern Division
March 27, 2015
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff, v CAESAR COOPER, Defendant.
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION, ACCEPTING DEFENDANT'S PLEA OF GUILTY AND TAKING THE RULE 11 PLEA AGREEMENT UNDER ADVISEMENT
TERRENCE G. BERG, District Judge.
A plea hearing was conducted in this case before United States Magistrate Judge Michael J. Hluchaniuk pursuant to the defendant's consent. Judge Hluchaniuk issued a report, recommending acceptance of defendant's guilty plea. Either party may serve and file written objections "[w]ithin fourteen days after being served with a copy" of the report and recommendations. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). The district court will make a "de novo determination of those portions of the report... to which objection is made." Id. Where, as here, neither party objects to this report, the district court is not obligated to independently review the record. Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149-52 (1985). This Court has received the report and finds its conclusions and Judge Hluchaniuk's recommendation to be reasonable.
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that Judge Hluchaniuk's Report and Recommendation [Dkt. 27] is ADOPTED.
It is further ORDERED that the defendant's guilty plea is ACCEPTED, and the Rule 11 Plea Agreement [Dkt. 26] is TAKEN UNDER ADVISEMENT.
