UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF KENTUCKY
CENTRAL DIVISION at LEXINGTON
) Civil Action No. 5:12-cv-23-JMH
GARY BECKSTROM, Warden,
Recommendation of Magistrate Judge Hanly A. Ingram [DE 4].
action was referred to the magistrate for the purpose of reviewing
the merit of Petitioner’s Application to Proceed Without Prepayment
of Fees [DE 2].
The Magistrate Judge's Recommended Disposition was entered in
the record on February 3, 2012, recommending that Petitioner’s
Application to Proceed Without Prepayment of Fees [DE 2] be denied
and advising Birdsong that, unless particularized objections to the
Recommended Disposition were due within fourteen days of the date
of service, further appeal of the issue raised in the Motion would
Fourteen days have now expired, and Birdsong has filed
determination of those portions of the report or specified proposed
findings or recommendations made by the magistrate judge."
U.S.C. § 636.
However, when the petitioner fails to file any
objections to the Recommended Disposition, as in this case, "[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."
Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 150
(1985). Consequently, this Court adopts the reasoning set forth in
the Recommended Disposition as its own.
Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED:
that the Recommended Disposition of Magistrate Judge
Hanly A. Ingram [Record No. 4] is ACCEPTED and ADOPTED;
Prepayment of Fees [DE 2] is DENIED;
that the Petitioner shall submit the $5 filing fee to the
Clerk of the Court by no later than thirty (30) days from entry of
Failure to pay the fee in accordance with the Court’s
order will result in dismissal of the action and that the action
will not be reinstated to the Court’s active docket despite the
subsequent payment of the filing fee. McGore v. Wrigglesworth, 114
F.3d 601, 605 (6th Cir. 1997).
This is the 29th day of February, 2012.
