Converse v. Kohut et al
ORDER ADOPTING FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS 30 in full. Any appeal of this decision would not be taken in good faith. Signed by Judge Dana L. Christensen on 9/11/2017. Mailed to Converse (TAG)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF MONTANA
MATTHEW MICHAEL CONVERSE,
TRISTAN KOHUT, et al.,
United States Magistrate Judge John T. Johnston entered Findings and
Recommendations in this case on August 16, 201 7, recommending that Plaintiff
Matthew Converse's ("Converse") complaint be dismissed. Converse did not
object to the Findings and Recommendations, and so has waived the right to de
novo review thereof. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(l)(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 omitted).
Having reviewed the Findings and Recommendations, the Court finds no
clear error in Judge Johnston's conclusion that Converse failed to comply with the
Court's April 10, 2017 Scheduling Order (Doc. 18) and the Court's June 27, 2017
Order (Doc. 24). Converse also failed to respond to Defendants' Motion for Leave
to File an Amended Answer.
Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that Judge Johnston's Findings and
Recommendations (Doc. 30) is ADOPTED IN FULL. This case is DISMISSED
pursuant to Rule 41(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of Court shall CLOSE this
matter, enter judgment pursuant to Rule 58 of the Federal Rules of Civil
Procedure, and terminate all pending motions.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of Court is directed to have the
docket reflect that the Court certifies pursuant to Rule 24(a)(3)(A) of the Federal
Rules of Appellate Procedure that any appeal of this decision would not be taken
in good faith.
