UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
EDWARD L. HILTON,
CASE NO: 16-CV-11347-DT
ROBERT PICKELL, ET AL.,
ORDER ADOPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
This matter was referred to United States Elizabeth Stafford pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
§636(b)(1)(B) and Local Rule 72.1. In her report filed on October 31, 2016, the magistrate
judge recommended that this court grant Defendant Dennis Lloyd’s Motion to Dismiss filed on
July 12, 2016. A notice of joinder/concurrence was filed by Defendant Pickell on July 19,
2016. The magistrate judge issues an order to show cause due to Plaintiff’s failure to respond
to the motion to dismiss. No response was filed, and 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, Defendant Dennis Lloyd’s Motion to Dismiss [Dkt # 16] is
GRANTED and the complaint is DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.

Dated: January 11, 2017
