IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF ARIZONA
No. CV-13-02501-PHX-NVW (MEA)
United States of America,
Pending before the court is the Report and Recommendation (“R&R”) of
Magistrate Judge Aspey (Doc. 14) regarding petitioner’s Motion for Return of Property
(Doc. 1) filed pursuant to Rule 41(g) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure. The
R&R recommends that the Motion for Return of Property (Doc. 1) be denied and
dismissed with prejudice.
fourteen days to file objections to the R&R.
The Magistrate Judge advised the parties that they had
(R&R at 6 (citing Rule 72(b),
Fed. R. Crim. P.)). No objections were filed.
Because the parties did not file objections, the court need not review any of the
Magistrate Judge’s determinations on dispositive matters. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1);
Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b); United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003);
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.”). The absence of a
timely objection also means that error may not be assigned on appeal to any defect in the
rulings of the Magistrate Judge on any non-dispositive matters. Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(a) (“A
party may serve and file objections to the order within 14 days after being served with a
copy [of the magistrate’s order]. A party may not assign as error a defect in the order not
timely objected to.”); Simpson v. Lear Astronics Corp., 77 F.3d 1170, 1174
(9th Cir. 1996); Phillips v. GMC, 289 F.3d 1117, 1120–21 (9th Cir. 2002).
Notwithstanding the absence of an objection, the court has reviewed the R&R and
finds that it is well taken. The court will accept the R&R and dismiss the Motion for
Return of Property (Doc. 1). See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) (stating that the district court
“may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the findings or recommendations
made by the magistrate”).
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Report and Recommendation of the
Magistrate Judge (Doc. 14) is accepted.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court enter judgment denying
and dismissing with prejudice Petitioner’s Motion for Return of Property (Doc. 1) filed
pursuant to Rule 41(g) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure with prejudice. The
Clerk shall terminate this action.
