OPINION & ORDER Adopting Report and Recommendation 23 and granting defts' 14 Motion to Dismiss. Case dismissed. Signed by District Judge Nancy G. Edmunds. (CBet)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
CHARLIE BOTHUELL, IV,
Case No. 16-11009
Honorable Nancy G. Edmunds
NANCY GRACE, et al.,
OPINION AND ORDER ACCEPTING AND ADOPTING THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE'S
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION 
In a report and recommendation ("R&R") issued on February 16, 2017 (Dkt. 23),
Magistrate Judge Stephanie Dawkins Davis recommends that the Court grant Defendants'
motion to dismiss. (Dkt. 14.) 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 underlying motion, and the record, the Court
concurs with the Magistrate Judge's analysis, and therefore ACCEPTS and ADOPTS the
Magistrate Judge's R&R.
Therefore, it is hereby ordered that Defendants' motion to dismiss is GRANTED.
