IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF OREGON
KAMANA O’KALA, LLC,
OPINION AND ORDER
LITE SOLAR, LLC, et al.,
On February 13, 2017, Magistrate Judge Paul Papak issued his Findings and
Recommendation (“F&R”) , recommending that Plaintiff’s Motion to Remand  should be
GRANTED and Defendants’ Motion to Transfer Venue  should be DENIED as moot.
Defendants filed objections  and Plaintiff filed a response .
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
recommendation 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
1 – OPINION AND ORDER
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 under 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 careful review, I agree with Judge Papak’s recommendations and ADOPT the F&R
 as my own opinion. Plaintiff’s Motion to Remand  is GRANTED and Defendants’
Motion to Transfer Venue  is DENIED as moot. The action should be REMANDED to the
Multnomah County Circuit Court.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
