IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF KANSAS
DRU DION KRAMER,
Case No. 17-CV-4001-DDC-KGS
EMPLOYMENT SECURITY BOARD
On January 5, 2017, plaintiff Dru Dion Kramer filed a Complaint (Doc. 1) and a Motion
to Proceed Without Prepayment of Fees (Doc. 3). On January 11, 2017, Judge K. Gary Sebelius
issued a Report and Recommendation (Doc. 6), recommending that the district judge dismiss the
action for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. Judge Sebelius explained that plaintiff’s Complaint
fails to plead either federal question or diversity jurisdiction. And, thus, plaintiff has failed to
establish that the court has subject matter jurisdiction in this case.
Judge Sebelius noted in his Report and Recommendation that plaintiff may serve and file
objections to the Report and Recommendation under 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Fed. R. Civ. P.
72, within 14 days after service. Doc. 6 at 3. He also advised plaintiff that failing to make a
timely objection to the Report and Recommendation waives any right to appellate review of the
proposed findings of fact, conclusions of law, or recommended disposition. See id. (explaining
that “[i]f no objections are timely filed, no appellate review will be allowed by any court.”). The
Clerk sent a copy of the Report and Recommendation to plaintiff by certified mail. See Docket
Entry for Doc. 6 (stating “[a] copy of this order was sent to plaintiff by certified mail . . . .”).
The Clerk received a certified mail receipt showing that Mr. Kramer received and signed for the
mailing on January 17, 2017. Doc. 8.
Service of the Report and Recommendation was accomplished by “mailing it to
[plaintiff’s] last known address—in which event service [was] complete upon mailing.” Fed. R.
Civ. P. 5(b)(2)(C); see also ReVoal v. Brownback, No. 14-4076, 2014 WL 5321093, at *1 (D.
Kan. Oct. 16, 2014). That mailing occurred on January 11, 2017, when the Clerk mailed the
Report and Recommendation to plaintiff. See Doc. 6. The time for plaintiff to file any
objections to the Report and Recommendation thus has expired.1
To date, plaintiff has filed no objections to the Report and Recommendation, nor has he
sought any extension of time to file an objection. Because plaintiff has filed no objection to the
Report and Recommendation within the time prescribed, and he has sought no extension of time
to file an objection, the court accepts, adopts, and affirms the Report and Recommendation in its
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that, after reviewing the file de novo, the Report and
Recommendation issued by United States Magistrate Judge K. Gary Sebelius on January 11,
2017 (Doc. 6) is ACCEPTED, ADOPTED and AFFIRMED. The court dismisses this action
under Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(1) for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated this 6th day of February, 2017, at Topeka, Kansas
s/ Daniel D. Crabtree
Daniel D. Crabtree
United States District Judge
Plaintiff’s deadline for responding is extended by three days under Fed. R. Civ. P. 6(d), because
service was made by mail. Even adding these three additional days to the 14-day response time, the
deadline for responding to Judge Sebelius’ Report and Recommendation has expired.
