IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF ARIZONA
Lon Roger Coleman,
Charles L. Ryan, et al.,
At issue is Defendants’ Motion to Compel and Motion for Discovery Sanctions
(Doc. 44), which is based on Plaintiff's repeated and continued failure to provide initial
disclosure, continuing disclosure, or otherwise participate in the discovery process as
ordered by this Court.
On May 21, 2014, Magistrate Judge Metcalf, to whom this matter was referred,
filed a Report and Recommendation (Doc. 46, Report). In the Report, Magistrate Judge
Metcalf, after detailed analysis of applicable statutes and rules, recommended that the
Court grant Defendants’ motions and enter as an appropriate sanction dismissal of this
case without prejudice.
More than 14 days have elapsed since the entry of the Report, and Plaintiff has
filed no objections to it. Even if Plaintiff had objected to the Report, this Court, upon de
novo review, is persuaded that the recommendation is well taken. Plaintiff has failed to
comply with his discovery obligations under Rule 26 of the Federal Rules of Civil
Procedure or this Court's orders. An appropriate sanction under Rule 37(c)(1)(C), in light
of Plaintiff's continued failure to comply with his obligations and the likelihood that other
sanctions will not sufficiently remedy the noncompliance, is dismissal of this matter
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED accepting and adopting the Magistrate Judge's
Report and Recommendation (Doc. 46) as the Order of this Court.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED dismissing this matter as to all Defendants without
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED denying as moot Plaintiff’s Motion for
Reconsideration (Doc. 20).
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED dismissing as moot the Magistrate Judge's other
outstanding Report and Recommendation (Doc. 40), entered March 31, 2014, involving
the dismissal of Defendants Blackard and Gordanier.
Dated this 17th day of July, 2014.
Honorable John J. Tuchi
United States District Judge
