ORDER ADOPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
AND DENYING PLAINTIFF’S MOTIONS FOR DEFAULT JUDGMENT, SUMMARY
JUDGMENT, AND REQUEST FOR ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
Presently before the Court is the report issued on May 5, 2021 by Magistrate Judge
Anthony P. Patti under 28 U.S.C. § 636(b), recommending that the Court deny the plaintiff’s
motions seeking an order to show cause, entry of default judgment, and entry of summary
judgment as to defendants Robert Hammer and Joseph Awarda. Although the report stated that
the parties to this action could object to and seek review of the recommendation within fourteen
days of service of the report, no objections have been filed thus far. The parties’ failure to file
objections to the report and recommendation waives any further right to appeal. Smith v. Detroit
Fed’n of Teachers Local 231, 829 F.2d 1370, 1373 (6th Cir. 1987). Likewise, the failure to object
to the magistrate judge’s report releases the Court from its duty to independently review the matter.
Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985). However, the Court agrees with the findings and
conclusions of the magistrate judge.
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the Magistrate Judge’s report and recommendation
(ECF No. 75) is ADOPTED.
It is further ORDERED that the plaintiff’s motions for an order to show cause, entry of
default judgment, and entry of summary judgment (ECF Nos. 73, 74) are DENIED.
It is further ORDERED that the referral of the matter to the assigned magistrate judge is
CONTINUED under the previously issued order of reference (ECF No. 7).
