Case No. 2:16-cv-02489-APG-CWH ORDER ON REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION (ECF. NO. 6) 9 10 On October 16, 2017, Magistrate Judge Hoffman entered a report and recommendation 11 that I dismiss this case without prejudice because plaintiff Jeff Williamson did not pay the filing 12 fee or file a renewed application to proceed in forma pauperis as directed. ECF No. 6. 13 Williamson did not file an objection. Thus, I am not obligated to conduct a de novo review of the 14 report and recommendation. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) (requiring district courts to “make a de novo 15 determination of those portions of the report or specified proposed findings to which objection is 16 made”); United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003) (en banc) (“the 17 district judge must review the magistrate judge’s findings and recommendations de novo if 18 objection is made, but not otherwise” (emphasis in original)). I nevertheless conducted a de novo 19 review. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). Judge Hoffman sets forth the proper legal analysis and factual 20 basis for the decision. 21 IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Judge Hoffman’s report and recommendation (ECF 22 No. 6) is accepted. Plaintiff Jeff Williamson’s complaint is DISMISSED without prejudice. The 23 clerk of court is instructed to close this case. 24 DATED this 21st day of November, 2017. 25 26 27 28 ANDREW P.
