UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
Case No. 2:16-cv-03018-APG-PAL
TOM WILSON, et al.,
ORDER ON REPORT AND
(ECF. NO. 3)
On September 26, 2017, Magistrate Judge Leen entered a report and recommendation that
I deny plaintiff Imhotep Salat’s request to proceed in forma pauperis and that I dismiss his
complaint. 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 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.
3) is accepted. Plaintiff Imhotep Salat’s application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis (ECF
No.1) is DENIED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the complaint is DISMISSED without prejudice to
Salat pursuing his claims in state court. The clerk of court is instructed to close this case.
DATED this 21st day of November, 2017.
ANDREW P. GORDON
