UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
Nye County Sheriff’s Dept.,
Order Adopting Report and
Recommendation and Dismissing
Complaint without Prejudice
[ECF No. 5]
Pro se plaintiff Benjamin Holly brings this civil-rights action against the Nye County
Sheriff’s Department. On December 5, 2016, Magistrate Judge Ferenbach granted Holly’s
application to proceed in forma pauperis and screened Holly’s complaint. The magistrate judge
recommends that I dismiss Holly’s complaint without prejudice and with leave to amend because the
Nye County Sheriff’s Department is not a proper target for Holly’s § 1983 claims and it is the only
named defendant. “[N]o review is required of a magistrate judge’s report and recommendation
unless objections are filed.”1 Objections to the magistrate judge’s report and recommendation were
due by December 22, 2016, and Holly has not filed an objection or requested an extension to do so.
Accordingly, with good cause appearing and no reason to delay, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED,
ADJUDGED, and DECREED that the magistrate judge’s report and recommendation [ECF No. 5] is
ADOPTED. The complaint [ECF No. 6] is DISMISSED without prejudice and with leave to
amend. If Holly wishes to file an amended complaint curing the deficiencies outlined in the
magistrate judge’s report and recommendation, he must do so by February 3, 2017. If Holly does
not file an amended complaint by this deadline, this case will be dismissed with prejudice and
without further notice.

U.S. 140, 150 (1985); United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003).
The Clerk of Court is directed not to issue summons on the amended complaint. The court
will screen the amended complaint and address the issuance of summons at that time if necessary.
Dated this 4th day of January, 2017.
