The Honorable Bridget S. Bade, 18 United States Magistrate Judge, issued a Report and Recommendation (“R&R”) (Doc. 19 30), recommending that the Court dismiss the Complaint due to Plaintiff’s failure to 20 return a service packet and thereby effect service through the United States Marshals 21 Service on the only defendant in this matter. Judge Bade advised Plaintiff that he had 22 fourteen (14) days to file objections to the R&R and that failure to file timely objections 23 could be considered a waiver of the right to obtain review of the R&R. See also 28 24 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); Fed. R. Civ. P. 6, 72; United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 25 1121 (9th Cir. 2003). 26 No timely objection has been filed, which relieves the Court of its obligation to 27 review the R&R. See Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d at 1121; Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 28 (1985) (“[Section 636(b)(1)] does not . . . require any review at all . . . of any issue that is 1 not the subject of an objection.”); Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(3) (“The district judge must 2 determine de novo any part of the magistrate judge’s disposition that has been properly 3 objected to.”). The Court has nonetheless reviewed the R&R and finds that it is well- 4 taken. The Court will adopt the R&R and dismiss this action. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) 5 (stating that the district court “may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the 6 findings or recommendations made by the magistrate”); Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(3) (“The 7 district judge may accept, reject, or modify the recommended disposition; receive further 8 evidence; or return the matter to the magistrate judge with instructions.”). Accordingly, 9 10 11 IT IS ORDERED: 1. That Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation (Doc. 30) is accepted and adopted by the Court; 12 2. That this action is dismissed without prejudice; 13 3. That the reference to Magistrate Judge Bridget S. Bade is withdrawn; and 14 4. That the Clerk of Court shall terminate this action. 15 Dated this 14th day of August, 2015. 16 17 Honorable Steven P.
