MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on the Report and Recommendation (“Report”) (Doc.
42) of Magistrate Judge Donald G. Wilkerson recommending that the Court grant in part and deny
in part the defendants’ uncontested motion for sanctions (Doc. 38). Specifically, Magistrate
Judge Wilkerson recommends the Court dismiss this case with prejudice pursuant to Federal Rule
of Civil Procedure 37(d) as a sanction for plaintiff William L. Henderson’s failure to respond to
written discovery, attend his deposition and notify the Court of his correct address, but refrain from
imposing monetary sanctions.
The Court may accept, reject or modify, in whole or in part, the findings or
recommendations of the magistrate judge in a report and recommendation. Fed. R. Civ. P.
72(b)(3). The Court must review de novo the portions of the report to which objections are made.
Id. “If no objection or only partial objection is made, the district court judge reviews those
unobjected portions for clear error.” Johnson v. Zema Sys. Corp., 170 F.3d 734, 739 (7th Cir.
The Court has received no objection to the Report. The Court has reviewed the entire file
and finds that the Report is not clearly erroneous. Accordingly, the Court hereby:
ADOPTS the Report in its entirety (Doc. 42);
GRANTS in part and DENIES in part the defendants’ motion for sanctions (Doc. 38);
DISMISSES this case with prejudice; and
DIRECTS the Clerk of Court to enter judgment accordingly.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED: September 22, 2016
