PARRISH REDD, Plaintiff,
TERRANCE VAILS, et al., Defendants.
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION AND DENYING PLAINTIFF’S MOTIONS FOR DEFAULT JUDGMENT
MARIANNE O. BATTANI UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
Plaintiff filed a pro se complaint alleging copyright infringement in November 2014. The Court referred the case to United States Magistrate Judge R. Steven Whalen for all pretrial proceedings. On March 27, 2015, Magistrate Judge Whalen issued a Report and Recommendation (“R&R”) recommending that the Court deny Plaintiff’s Motions for Default Judgment as to Chris Hugan and Marty Peters (See Doc. Nos. 39, 43, 44, 45, 50).
In his Report and Recommendation, the Magistrate Judge informed the parties that objections to the R&R needed to be filed “within fourteen (14) days of service” and that a party’s failure to file objections would waive any further right of appeal. (Doc. No. 51 at 4). No objection has been filed.
Not only does the Court agree with the analysis and recommendations contained in the R&R that the time for Defendants Peters and Hugan to file an answer had not passed and there had been no entry of default, the Court adds that Hugan and Peters timely answered the complaint after the R&R was filed.
Accordingly, the Court ADOPTS the Magistrate Judge’s recommendation and DENIES Plaintiff’s motions.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
