United States District Court, E.D. Michigan, Southern Division
June 9, 2015
CLARA VARGAS, Plaintiff,
CITY OF NOVI, MACY'S, KELLY SERVICES, INFO TREE SERVICES, U.S. ATTORNEY, LEE GAVIN, ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE STATE OF MICHIGAN, NISSAN MOTOR COMPANY, INC. and UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, WASHINGTON D.C., Defendants.
ORDER ADOPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE'S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION AND DISMISSING PLAINTIFF'S COMPLAINT WITHOUT PREJUDICE
DAVID M. LAWSON, District Judge.
Presently before the Court is the report issued on May 20, 2015 by Magistrate Judge R. Steven Whalen pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b), recommending that the Court dismiss the remaining defendants in this case because the plaintiff failed to timely serve them under Rule 4(m) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure: Macy's, Kelly Services, Info Tree Services, United States Attorney, Lee Gavin, Attorney General of the State of Michigan, Nissan Motor Company, Inc., and the United States Department of Justice. 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 that the Court dismiss sua sponte the remaining defendants without prejudice [dkt. #117] is ADOPTED.
It is further ORDERED that the plaintiff's complaint is DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
