United States District Court, E.D. Michigan, Southern Division
May 6, 2015
RANDLE GRIFFIN, Plaintiff,
PAUL KLEE et al., Defendants.
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION (ECF #23) AND DENYING DEFENDANTS' MOTION TO DISMISS (ECF #14)
MATTHEW F. LEITMAN, District Judge.
On April 16, 2015, Magistrate Judge Anthony Patti issued a Report and Recommendation ("R&R") recommending that the Court deny the Motion to Dismiss ( see ECF #14) filed by Defendants Paula Klee, Joseph Barrett, and Michelle Parsons. ( See ECF #22.) The R&R stated that the parties could object to and seek review of the recommendation within fourteen days. ( See id. at 20-21, Pg. ID 158-159.)
Neither party has objected to the R&R. Failure to file objections to the R&R waives any further right to appeal. See Howard v. Sec'y of Health and Human Servs., 932 F.2d 505 (6th Cir. 1991); see also 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 R&R releases the Court from its duty to independently review the matter. See Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985). The Court has nevertheless reviewed the R&R and agrees with the findings and conclusions of the Magistrate Judge.
Therefore, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Magistrate Judge's April 16, 2015, Report and Recommendation (ECF #23) is ADOPTED as the Opinion of this Court. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED, for the reasons stated in the R&R, that the Motion to Dismiss filed by Defendants Paula Klee, Joseph Barrett, and Michelle Parsons (ECF #14) is DENIED.
