IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF NORTH CAROLINA
LAWRENCE VERLINE WILDER, SR.,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting
Commissioner of Social Security, et al.,
On July 19, 2016, Lawrence Verline Wilder ("Wilder'' or "plaintiff') filed an application to
proceed in forma pauperis and a proposed complaint [D.E. 1]. On August 18, 2016, the court
referred plaintiffs application and proposed complaint to Magistrate Judge Gates for a
Memorandum and Recommendation ("M&R") [D.E. 5]. On November 7, 2016, Magistrate Judge
Gates issued an M&R and recommended that plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis be
allowed and that plaintiff's complaint be dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction [D.E. 6].
Plaintiff did not object to the M&R.
"The Federal Magistrates Act requires a district court to make a de novo determination of
those portions of the magistrate judge's report or specified proposed findings or recommendations
towhichobjectionismade." Diamond v. ColonialLife&Accidentlns. Co., 416F.3d310, 315 (4th
Cir. 2005) (emphasis, alteration, and quotation omitted); see 28 U.S.C. § 636(b). Absent a timely
objection, "a district court need not conduct a de novo review, but instead must only satisfy itselfthat
there is no clear error on the face of the record in order to accept the recommendation." Diamond,
416 F .3d at 315 (quotation omitted).
The court has reviewed the M&R and the record. The court is satisfied that there is no clear
error on the face of the record. Plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis is GRANTED,
and plaintiff's complaint is DISMISSED. The clerk shall close the case.
SO ORDERED. This .1B._ day of December 2016.
