ORDER accepting ECF No. 21 Report and Recommendation, dismissing with prejudice Plaintiff's complaint. Signed by Judge Andrew P. Gordon on 11/21/2017. (Copies have been distributed pursuant to the NEF - KR)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
JAWVAN E. COOK,
Case No. 2:16-cv-00256-APG-CWH
LAS VEGAS METROPOLITAN POLICE
ORDER ON REPORT AND
(ECF. NO. 21)
On September 29, 2017, Magistrate Judge Hoffman entered a report and recommendation
that I dismiss this case with prejudice because plaintiff Jawvan Cook has ceased participating in
the case and has not complied with the court’s orders. Cook did not file an objection. Thus, I am
not obligated to conduct a de novo review of the report and recommendation. 28 U.S.C.
§ 636(b)(1) (requiring district courts to “make a de novo determination of those portions of the
report or specified proposed findings to which objection is made”); United States v. Reyna-Tapia,
328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003) (en banc) (“the district judge must review the magistrate
judge’s findings and recommendations de novo if objection is made, but not otherwise” (emphasis
in original)). I nevertheless conducted a de novo review. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). Judge Hoffman
sets forth the proper legal analysis and factual basis for the decision.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Judge Hoffman’s report and recommendation (ECF
No. 21) is accepted. Plaintiff Jawvan Cook’s complaint is DISMISSED with prejudice.
DATED this 21st day of November, 2017.
ANDREW P. GORDON
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
