UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
JEFF H. WILLIAMSON,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, et al.,
Case No. 2:16-cv-02489-APG-CWH
ORDER ON REPORT AND
(ECF. NO. 6)
On October 16, 2017, Magistrate Judge Hoffman entered a report and recommendation
that I dismiss this case without prejudice because plaintiff Jeff Williamson did not pay the filing
fee or file a renewed application to proceed in forma pauperis as directed. ECF No. 6.
Williamson 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. 6) is accepted. Plaintiff Jeff Williamson’s complaint is DISMISSED without prejudice. The
clerk of court is instructed to close this case.
DATED this 21st day of November, 2017.
ANDREW P. GORDON
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
