CASE NO: 15-CV-10090-DT
MR. DOYLE, C. JOHNSON,
T. CRAWFORD, D. SCOTT, AND
ORDER ADOPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
This matter was referred to United States Magistrate R. Steven Whalen pursuant to
28 U.S.C. §636(b)(1)(B) and Local Rule 72.1. In his report filed on July 5, 2017, the
magistrate judge recommended that this court grant Defendants Debra Skutt and Sean
Lockhart’s [Dkt # 40] Motion for Summary Judgment. He further recommended that
Defendant Cary Johnson be sua sponte dismissed with prejudice. No objections have been
filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C.§ 636(b)(1)(C), thus further appeal rights are waived.1
Having reviewed the file and the report, the court concludes that the findings and
conclusions of the magistrate judge are correct and ADOPTS the same for purposes of this
Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that, for the reasons set forth in the Magistrate Judge’s
Report and Recommendation, Defendants’ [Dkt # 40] Motion for Summary Judgment is
GRANTED and that Defendants Debra Skutt and Sean Lockhart are DISMISSED WITH
The failure to object to the magistrate judge’s report releases the court from its duty to
independently review the motion. Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985).
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Defendant Cary Johnson is sua sponte DISMISSED
