FOR THE DISTRICT OF OREGON
U.S. BANK NATIONAL ASSOCIATION AS
TRUSTEE FOR GREENPOINT MORTGAGE

CERTIFICATE SERIES 2006-AR4,
OPINION AND ORDER
TERRENCE EDWARDS et al.,
On June 19, 2017, Magistrate Judge John v. Acosta issued his Findings and
Recommendation (“F&R”) , recommending that U.S. Bank’s Motion to Dismiss  should
be GRANTED in part and DENIED in part, and that Attorney Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss
 should be GRANTED. No objections to the F&R were filed.
The magistrate judge makes only recommendations to the court, to which any party may
file written objections. The court is not bound by the recommendations of the magistrate judge,
but retains responsibility for making the final determination. The court is generally required to
make a de novo determination regarding those portions of the report or specified findings or

recommendations as to which an objection is made. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C). However, the
court is not required to review, de novo or under any other standard, the factual or legal
conclusions of the magistrate judge as to those portions of the F&R to which no objections are
addressed. See Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985); United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328
F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003). While the level of scrutiny with which I am required to review
the F&R depends on whether or not objections have been filed, in either case, I am free to
accept, reject, or modify any part of the F&R. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C).
Upon review, I agree with Judge Acosta’s recommendations and ADOPT the F&R 
as my own opinion. Accordingly, I GRANT in part and DENY in part U.S. Bank’s Motion to
Dismiss , and GRANT Attorney Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss . However, I also give Mr.
Edwards leave to amend his first counterclaim to assert additional facts supporting his
securitization theory. Mr. Edwards’s second counterclaim is DISMISSED with prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
