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

and Stephen Bach, is GRANTED.
3. The Motion to Dismiss Plaintiff’s Amended Complaint Pursuant to Fed. R.
Civ. P. 12(b)(1) and 12(b)(6) filed by defendants Town of Green Mountain Falls, Town
of Monument, City of Woodland Park, and City of Fountain [Docket No. 31] is
4. Defendant El Paso County’s Motion to Dismiss Amended Complaint Pursuant
to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(1) and 12(b)(6) [Docket No. 35] is GRANTED.
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).
