U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
O’REILLY AUTOMOTIVE, INC.,
Case No. 5:10-cv-02958-RDP
On October 22, 2012, the magistrate judge filed his report and recommendation in the abovereferenced case (Doc. # 43), recommending that this court grant Defendant’s Motion for Summary
Judgment (Doc. # 29). Although objections to the report and recommendation were due to be filed
by November 6, 2012, see Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b), no objections were filed.
Having now carefully reviewed and considered de novo all of the materials in the court file,1
including the report and recommendation, the court is of the opinion that the report is due to be, and
hereby is, ADOPTED, and the recommendation is ACCEPTED.
Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment (Doc. # 29) is GRANTED. Defendant’s
Motion to Strike (Doc. # 37) is MOOT.
It is hereby ORDERED, ADJUDGED, AND DECREED that final judgment be entered in
favor of O’Reilly Automotive, Inc. and against Plaintiff Kelvin Jones. This action is DISMISSED
The court notes that it was not required to conduct an independent review of the report and
recommendation in this case because no party has filed objections. Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b); Thomas
v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 150 (1985)(“It does not appear that Congress intended to require district court
review of a magistrate's factual or legal conclusions, under a de novo or any other standard, when
neither party objects to those findings.”). Nonetheless, the court has reviewed the magistrate’s report
and agrees with his conclusions.
Costs are taxed against Plaintiff.
DONE and ORDERED this
day of November, 2012.
R. DAVID PROCTOR
