1 2 3 4 5 6 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 7 FOR THE DISTRICT OF ARIZONA 8 Arjan Singh, 9 10 Petitioner, vs. 11 12 13 Katrina S. Kane, et al., Respondents. 14 ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) No. CV-14-01354-PHX-SPL (BSB) ORDER 15 Before the Court is Petitioner Arjan Singh’s unopposed Motion to Dismiss (Doc. 16 17) his Petition Under 28 U.S.C. § 2241 for a Writ of Habeas Corpus by a Person in 17 Federal Custody (Doc. 1). 18 The Honorable Bridget S. Bade, United States Magistrate Judge, issued a Report 19 and Recommendation (“R&R”) (Doc. 22), recommending that the motion to dismiss be 20 granted. Judge Bade advised the parties that they had fourteen (14) days to file objections 21 to the R&R and that failure to file timely objections could be considered a waiver of the 22 right to obtain review of the R&R. (Doc. 13 at 9-10) (citing 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); Fed. 23 R. Civ. P. 6, 72; United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003)). 24 The parties did not file objections, which relieves the Court of its obligation to 25 review the R&R. See Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d at 1121; Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 26 (1985) (“[Section 636(b)(1)] does not . . . require any review at all . . . of any issue that is 27 not the subject of an objection.”); Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(3) (“The district judge must 28 determine de novo any part of the magistrate judge’s disposition that has been properly 1 objected to.”). The Court has nonetheless reviewed the R&R and finds that it is well- 2 taken. The Court will adopt the R&R, grant the motion, and thereby dismiss the petition. 3 See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) (stating that the district court “may accept, reject, or modify, in 4 whole or in part, the findings or recommendations made by the magistrate”); Fed. R. Civ. 5 P. 72(b)(3) (“The district judge may accept, reject, or modify the recommended 6 disposition; receive further evidence; or return the matter to the magistrate judge with 7 instructions.”). Accordingly, 8 IT IS ORDERED: 9 1. That Magistrate Judge Bade’s Report and Recommendation (Doc. 22) is 10 11 12 accepted and adopted by the Court; 2. That the reference to the Magistrate Judge is withdrawn as to Petitioner’s Motion to Dismiss (Doc. 17) and the motion is granted; 13 3. That the Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus (Doc. 1) is dismissed; and 14 4. That the Clerk of Court shall terminate this action. 15 Dated this 6th day of January, 2015. 16 17 Honorable Steven P.
