Estrada's Report and Recommendation ("R&R"). Dkt. ##1, 10. The R&R recommends that the Court deny the motion because Movant has failed to establish that trial counsel was ineffective. Dkt. #10 at 18. The Magistrate Judge advised the parties that they had ten days to file objections to the R&R and that failure to file timely objections could be considered a waiver of the right to obtain review of the R&R.

The parties did not file objections, which relieves the Court of its obligation to review the R&R. See Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d at 1121; Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985) ("[Section 636(b)(1)] does not . . . require any review at all . . . of any issue that is not the subject of an objection."); Fed. R. Civ.
