Austin v. Commissioner of Social Security
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION AND DISMISSING CASE Signed by District Judge Marianne O. Battani. (KDoa)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
WANDA L. AUSTIN,
CASE NO. 17-cv-14082
HON. MARIANNE O. BATTANI
OF SOCIAL SECURITY,
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION AND DISMISSING CASE
The case was referred to Magistrate Judge Patricia T. Morris for determination
of all non-dispositive motions pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(A) and issuance of a
Report and Recommendation pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) and (C) .
Magistrate Judge Morris issued an Order to Show Cause on February 2, 2018
directing plaintiff, Wanda Austin, to show cause by March 2, 2018 why the Court should
not recommend dismissing plaintiff’s action under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(b)
for want of prosecution. The Order to Show Cause was mailed to Wanda Austin at
35505 E. Michigan Avenue, Apartment 8, Wayne, MI 48184. As of March 26, 2018,
Plaintiff failed to file a response to the Order to Show Cause.
In a Report and Recommendation ("R&R") dated March 26, 2018, Magistrate
Judge Morris recommended that the case be dismissed with prejudice for want of
prosecution. In her R&R, the Magistrate Judge informed the parties that objections to
the R&R needed to be filed within 14 days of service and that a party’s failure to file
objections would waive any further right of appeal. (ECF No. 12 at 4). The Report and
Recommendation was mailed to Wanda L. Austin, 35505 E. Michigan Avenue,
Apartment 8, Wayne, MI 48184 on March 26, 2018.
Neither party filed an objection. Because no objection has been filed in this case,
the parties waived their right to de novo review and appeal. Moreover, this Court
agrees with the thorough analysis contained in the R&R.
Accordingly, the Court ADOPTS the Magistrate Judge’s recommendation, this
case is DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE FOR WANT OF PROSECUTION pursuant to
Rule 41(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Date: March 28, 2019
