UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
Case No. 2:16-cv-02670-APG-GWF
DIRECTOR BRUCE BRESLOW, et al.,
ORDER ON REPORT AND
(ECF. NO. 10)
On February 8, 2018, Magistrate Judge Foley entered a report and recommendation that I
deny the application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis and dismiss this case because plaintiff
Imhotep Salat can afford to pay the filing fee and has made inconsistent statements about his
income in other cases in this District. ECF No. 3. Salat 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
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Judge Foley’s report and recommendation (ECF No.
3) is accepted. Plaintiff Imhotep Salat’s application to proceed in forma pauperis (ECF No. 1) is
DENIED and the complaint is DISMISSED without prejudice. The clerk of court is instructed to
close this case.
DATED this 6th day of March, 2018.
