ORDER ACCEPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S RECOMMENDATION
This matter is before the Court on the Recommendation of United States
Magistrate Judge Kathleen M. Tafoya filed on August 11, 2014 [Docket No. 189]. The
Recommendation states that objections to the Recommendation must be filed within
fourteen days after its service on the parties. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C). The
Recommendation was served on August 11, 2014. The Court granted plaintiff an
extension until September 4, 2014 to file objections [Docket No. 194]. No party has
objected to the Recommendation.
In the absence of an objection, the district court may review a magistrate judge’s
recommendation under any standard it deems appropriate. See Summers v. Utah, 927
F.2d 1165, 1167 (10th Cir. 1991); see also Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 150 (1985)
(“[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”). In this matter, the Court has reviewed the
Recommendation to satisfy itself that there is “no clear error on the face of the record.”1
Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b), Advisory Committee Notes. Based on this review, the Court has
concluded that the Recommendation is a correct application of the facts and the law.
Accordingly, it is
ORDERED as follows:
1. The Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge [Docket No. 189] is
2. The Partial Motion to Dismiss [Docket No. 155] filed by defendants Beverly
Dowis, Nicole Wilson, and Meghan Reed is granted. Plaintiff’s second, fifth, and sixth
claims for relief are dismissed with prejudice.
3. All claims against defendants Nicole Wilson, Meghan Reed, and Paula Frantz
are dismissed with prejudice.
This standard of review is something less than a “clearly erroneous or contrary
to law” standard of review, Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(a), which in turn is less than a de novo
review. Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b).
DATED September 8, 2014.
BY THE COURT:
