United States of America v. $100,000.00 in United States Currency
ORDER - The Findings and Recommendation of the United States Magistrate Judge (filing 32 ) are adopted. All claims brought by claimant Melanie Sia Vang are dismissed. Ordered by Judge John M. Gerrard. (Copy mailed to pro se party)(GJG)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
$100,000 IN UNITED STATES
This matter is before the Court on the Findings and Recommendation
of the United States Magistrate Judge (filing 32) recommending that all
claims brought by claimant Melanie Sia Vang should be dismissed based on
the claimant's failure to answer or otherwise respond to the complaint, and
the claimant's failure to respond to the Magistrate Judge's order to do so. No
objection to the findings and recommendation has been filed.
28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) provides for de novo review only when a party
objected to the Magistrate Judge's findings or recommendations. Peretz v.
United States, 501 U.S. 923 (1991). Failure to object to a finding of fact in a
Magistrate Judge's recommendation may be construed as a waiver of the
right to object from the district court's order adopting the recommendation of
the finding of fact. NECrimR 59.2(e). The Magistrate Judge's findings and
recommendation advised the parties that failure to object to the findings and
recommendation may be held to be a waiver of the right to appeal the Court's
adoption of the recommendation. See filing 32. And the failure to file an
objection eliminates not only the need for de novo review, but any review by
the Court. Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140 (1985); Leonard v. Dorsey & Whitney
LLP, 553 F.3d 609 (8th Cir. 2009); see also United States v. Meyer, 439 F.3d
855, 858-59 (8th Cir. 2006). Accordingly, the Court deems any objection to the
Magistrate Judge's findings and recommendation waived, and will adopt the
findings and recommendation.
IT IS ORDERED:
The Findings and Recommendation of the United States
Magistrate Judge (filing 32) are adopted.
All claims brought by claimant Melanie Sia Vang are
Dated this 12th day of March, 2013.
