FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Judge R. Brooke Jackson
Civil Action No 15-cv-00244-RBJ-NYW
LEROY W. BAKER,
LT. K. MEEK, Sterling Correctional Facility, Chaplain,
This matter is before the Court on the December 31, 2015 Order and Recommendation of
Magistrate Judge Nina Y. Wang [ECF No. 23]. The Recommendation addresses defendant’s
“Motion to Dismiss Pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(1) and 12(b)(6), Alternatively, Motion for
Summary Judgment Pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 56” [ECF No. 15]. 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. ECF No. 23 at 12.
Despite this advisement and permitting additional time for service and filing due to possible
delays associated with the prison mail system, no objection to Magistrate Judge Wang’s
Recommendation was 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 the relevant pleadings concerning the Recommendation. Based
on this review, the Court concludes that the Magistrate Judge’s 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 as the findings and
conclusions of this Court.
1. The Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge Wang [ECF No. 23] is
2. Defendant’s Motion [ECF No. 15] is considered as a Motion for Summary Judgment
and is GRANTED. This case is dismissed in its entirety without prejudice.
DATED this 8th day of February, 2016.
