RICHARD GENE WASHINGTON,
LANCE GRIFFIN, HEIDI ABBOTT,
LAURA JANES, CONNIE WINNER,
CATHY REDFERN, TRISTAN
KOHUT, and SCOTT PIRANIAN,
United States Magistrate Judge John T. Johnston entered findings and
recommendations in this case on February 9, 2017, recommending that Plaintiff
Richard Gene Washington's ("Washington") Motion to Dismiss Dr. Tristan Kohut
(Doc. 52) be granted and that Dr. Kohut be dismissed as a defendant in this action.
No party objected to the findings and recommendations, and so they have waived
the right to de novo review thereof. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1 )(C). This Court reviews
for clear error those findings and recommendations to which no party objects. See
McDonnell Douglas Corp. v. Commodore Bus. Mach., Inc., 656 F.2d 1309, 1313
(9th Cir. 1981); Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985). Clear error exists ifthe
Court is left with a "definite and firm conviction that a mistake has been
committed." United States v. Syrax, 235 F.3d 422, 427 (9th Cir. 2000) (citations
Having reviewed the findings and recommendations, the Court finds no
clear error in Judge Johnston's conclusion.
Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that Judge Johnston's Findings and
Recommendations (Doc. 53) are ADOPTED IN FULL. Dr. Tristan Kohut is
DISMISSED as a Defendant in the above-captioned case.
DATED this (Cf
~day of April, 2017.
