Price v. Malone
ORDER Adopting Report and Recommendation and Dismissing Complaint. Signed by District Judge Thomas L. Ludington. (SGam)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
GREGORY PRICE, II,
Case Number 12-10360
Honorable Thomas L. Ludington
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT
AND RECOMMENDATION AND DISMISSING COMPLAINT
This matter is before the Court on the report and recommendation (ECF No. 6) issued by
Magistrate Judge Charles E. Binder on February 17, 2012, recommending the case be dismissed.
Plaintiff Gregory Price’s pro se complaint brings a single claim against Defendant Vanessa
Malone, the mother of Plaintiff’s child, for the violation of the Parental Kidnapping Prevention
Act, 28 U.S.C. § 1738A.
After screening the pro se complaint pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §
1915(e)(2)(B), Judge Binder recommends that the complaint be dismissed because § 1738A does
not create a private cause of action. In re Larch, 872 F.2d 66, 68 (4th Cir. 1989).
As of today’s date, no party has filed any objections to Judge Binder’s report and
recommendation. The failure to file objections to the report and recommendation waives any
further right to appeal. Smith v. Detroit Fed’n of Teachers Local 231, 829 F.2d 1370, 1373 (6th
Cir. 1987). Likewise, the failure to object to the magistrate judge’s report releases the Court
from its duty to independently review the record. Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985).
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that Judge Binder’s report and recommendation (ECF No.
6) is ADOPTED.
It is further ORDERED that Plaintiff’s complaint is DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE.
Dated: March 6, 2012
