UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
Civil Case No. 16-10585
Honorable Linda V. Parker
MGM GRAND DETROIT CASINO,
OPINION AND ORDER ADOPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE PATTI’S
FEBRUARY 6, 2017 REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION AND DENYING
DEFENDANT’S MOTION TO DISMISS FOR FAILURE TO PROSECUTE
On February 17, 2016, Plaintiff Barbie Logan commenced this pro se lawsuit
alleging sex discrimination and retaliation by her former employer, Defendant MGM
Grand Detroit Casino. The matter has been referred to Magistrate Judge Anthony P. Patti
for all pretrial matters. (ECF No. 18.)
On December 22, 2016, Defendant filed a motion to dismiss for failure to prosecute
pursuant to Rule 41(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. As Magistrate Judge Patti
summarizes in his February 16, 2017 Report and Recommendation (“R&R”)
recommending that the Court deny the motion, Defendant seeks dismissal based on
Plaintiff’s failure to appear for her continued deposition. (ECF No. 27.) Magistrate
Judge Patti concludes that none of the factors relevant to deciding whether to dismiss for
failure to prosecute weigh in favor of dismissal. (Id. at 4-8.)
At the conclusion of the R&R, Magistrate Judge Patti informs the parties that they
must file any objections to the R&R within fourteen days. (Id. at 8.) No objections have
The Court has carefully reviewed Magistrate Judge Patti’s well-analyzed R&R and
concurs with his conclusions. The Court therefore adopts the R&R.
IT IS ORDERED that Defendant’s motion to dismiss for failure to prosecute (ECF
No. 22) is DENIED.
