UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
BEVERLY J. WATKINS,
UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER,
Case No. 2:16-cv-01105-APG-PAL
ORDER ON REPORT AND
(ECF. NO. 42)
On November 17, 2017, Magistrate Judge Leen entered an order granting defendant
University Medical Center’s motion to enforce the parties’ settlement agreement, although she
denied the request for sanctions. ECF No. 42. Judge Leen also recommended that this case be
dismissed with prejudice with each side responsible for its own attorney’s fees and costs. Id.
No one filed an objection to Judge Leen’s order or her recommendation. Thus, I am not
obligated to conduct a de novo review of the 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 Leen sets forth the proper
legal analysis and factual basis for the decision.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Judge Leen’s report and recommendation (ECF No.
42) is accepted. This case is DISMISSED with prejudice with each side responsible for its own
costs and attorney’s fees.
DATED this 8th day of December, 2017.
ANDREW P. GORDON
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
