ORDER AFFIRMING JANUARY 19, 2012 ORDER OF UNITED STATES
This matter is before the Court on the January 19, 2012 Recommendation by
United States Magistrate Judge Kristen L. Mix that Defendants’ Motion for Summary
Judgment (Doc. # 119) be granted in part and denied in part. (Doc. # 147.) The
Recommendation is incorporated herein by reference. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B);
Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b).
The Recommendation advised the parties that specific written objections were
due within fourteen (14) days after being served with a copy of the Recommendation.
(Doc. # 147 at 35.) Despite this advisement, no objections to Magistrate Judge Mix’s
Recommendation were filed by either party. “In the absence of timely objection, the
district court may review a magistrate [judge’s] report under any standard it deems
appropriate.” Summers v. Utah, 927 F.2d 1165, 1167 (10th Cir. 1991) (citing Thomas v.
Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 150 (1985) (stating that “[i]t does not appear that Congress intended
to require district court review of a magistrate’s factual or legal conclusions, under a
de novo or any other standard, when neither party objects to those findings.”).
The Court has reviewed all the relevant pleadings concerning Defendants’ Motion
for Summary Judgment and the Recommendation. Based on this review, the Court
concludes that Magistrate Judge Mix’s thorough and comprehensive analyses and
recommendations are correct and that “there is no clear error on the face of the record.”
Fed. R. Civ. P. 72 advisory committee’s note. Therefore, the Court ADOPTS the
Recommendation of Magistrate Judge Mix as the findings and conclusions of this Court.
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the Recommendation of the United States
Magistrate Judge (Doc. # 147) is AFFIRMED and ADOPTED. It is FURTHER
ORDERED that Defendants’ Motion for Summary Judgment (Doc. # 119) be GRANTED
IN PART and DENIED IN PART as provided for in the Recommendation. (See Doc.
# 147 at 33-35.)
BY THE COURT:
CHRISTINE M. ARGUELLO
United States District Judge
