IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF ARIZONA
No. CV-15-00185-TUC-JGZ (BGM)
City of Tucson, et al.,
Pending before the Court is a Report and Recommendation issued by United
States Magistrate Judge Bruce G. Macdonald that recommends granting Defendant
Greene’s Motion to Dismiss the claims pleaded against him. (Doc. 9.) No objection to the
Report and Recommendation was filed by Plaintiff. “When no timely objection is filed,
the court need only satisfy itself that there is no clear error on the face of the record in
order to accept the recommendation.” Fed. R. Civ. P. 72, Adv. Comm. Notes to 1983
The Court has reviewed the record and concludes that Magistrate Judge
Macdonald’s recommendations are in accordance with the controlling law in this Circuit,
and are therefore not clearly erroneous. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); Fed. R. Civ. P. 72;
Johnson v. Zema Systems Corp., 170 F.3d 734, 739 (7th Cir. 1999); see also Conley v.
Crabtree, 14 F.Supp.2d 1203, 1204 (D. Or. 1998). As thoroughly explained by
Magistrate Judge Macdonald and as acknowledged by Plaintiff’s counsel, Miller v.
Maxwell’s Int’l Inc., 991 F.2d 583 (9th Cir. 1993), precludes a finding of individual
liability under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. §§ 2000e et seq.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED as follows:
The Report and Recommendation (Doc. 25) is accepted and adopted;
Defendant Greene’s Motion to Dismiss (doc. 9) is GRANTED. Plaintiff’s
claims against Defendant Greene under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of
1964 are dismissed. As there are no remaining claims against Defendant
Greene in his individual capacity, Defendant Greene is dismissed from the
action without prejudice.
