Kenneth B. Rosemond appeals the district court’s order denying relief on his
Federal Tort Claims Act complaint. The district court referred this case to a magistrate
judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) (2012). The magistrate judge recommended
that relief be denied and advised Rosemond that failure to file timely, specific objections
to this recommendation could waive appellate review of a district court order based upon
the recommendation. The district court, noting that Rosemond’s objections were not
specific, adopted the report of the magistrate judge and granted Defendants summary
The timely filing of specific objections to a magistrate judge’s recommendation is
necessary to preserve appellate review of the substance of that recommendation when the
parties have been warned of the consequences of noncompliance. Wright v. Collins, 766
F.2d 841, 845-46 (4th Cir. 1985); see also Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 155 (1985).
Rosemond has waived appellate review by failing to file specific objections after
receiving proper notice. Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the district court.
We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are
adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the
