United States Magistrate Judge Lynch entered a Findings and
Recommendation on May 1, 201 7, recommending the Court dismiss this action
without prejudice pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(m). (Doc. 11.)
Because Plaintiff Kelly Kay Calkins did not file objections, Judge Lynch's

Commodore Bus. Mach., Inc., 656 F.2d 1309, 1313 (9th Cir. 1981). Clear error
exists if the Court is left with a "definite and firm conviction that a mistake has
been committed." Concrete Pipe & Prods. of Cal., Inc. v. Constr. Laborers

Calkins has failed to show good cause for the failure to serve Defendants in
this action. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that Judge Lynch's Findings and
Recommendation (Doc. 11) is ADOPTED-IN-FULL. This action is DISMISSED
WITHOUT PREJUDICE. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(m).
