Before the Court is the recommendation (Doc. 48) of United States
Magistrate Judge Scott T. Varholak that the Court dismiss Plaintiff’s
claims in this case for failure to prosecute. The recommendation states
that objections to the recommendation must be filed within fourteen
days after its service on the parties. (Doc. 48 at 6 (citing 28 U.S.C.
§ 636(b)(1)(C); Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)).) The recommendation was served
on October 26, 2020, and no party has objected to it.
In the absence of a timely objection, the Court may review a magistrate judge’s recommendation under any standard it deems appropriate.
