Beard et al v. Hawkins et al
ORDER Adopting Report and Recommendation. 187 Signed by District Judge Nancy G. Edmunds. (CBet)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
TONY DEWAYNE BEARD, JR., a legally
incapacitated person, by and through
JOHNETTE FORD, his legal guardian,
Case No. 14-13465
Honorable Nancy G. Edmunds
CITY OF SOUTHFIELD, et al.,
ORDER ACCEPTING AND ADOPTING THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE'S REPORT AND
In a Report and Recommendation (R&R) issued on May 22, 2017 (Dkt. 187),
Magistrate Judge Elizabeth Stafford recommends that this Court order attorney Johnny
Hawkins to pay Defendants $18,455.48 in sanctions, consistent with this Court's November
2016 order granting in part Defendants' motion for sanctions. (Dkt. 155.) Neither party has
filed objections to the R&R, and the deadline for doing so has passed. The parties' failure
to file objections to the R&R waives any further right to appeal. Smith v. Detroit Fed'n of
Teachers Local 231, 829 F.2d 1370, 1373 (6th Cir. 1987). Furthermore, the failure to
object to the R&R releases the Court from its duty to independently review the matter.
Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149-50 (1985). Nonetheless, having reviewed the R&R, the
parties' submissions, and the record as a whole, the Court concurs with the Magistrate
Judge's analysis and therefore ACCEPTS and ADOPTS the R&R.
Accordingly, this Court orders Johnny Hawkins to pay Defendants $18,455.48 in
