Case 6:22-cv-00382-MK Document 48 Filed 01/17/23 Page 1 of 2 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF OREGON EUGENE DIVISION ADALINE WINNINGHAM, individually, and on behalf of all others similarly situated, et al, Plaintiffs, Case No. 6:22 cv 00382-MK ORDER v. RAFEAL’S GOURMET DINER, LLC dba THE NILE, an Oregon Limited Liability Company; ABDRABARRASOOL M. BUESSA, an Individual; and DOES, 1 through 10, inclusive, Defendants. Magistrate Judge Mustafa Kasubhai filed Findings and Recommendation (“F&R”) (doc. 41) on December 19, 2022. The matter is now before me. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b); Fed. R. Civ. P. 72. No objections have been timely filed. Although this relieves me of my obligation to perform a de novo review, I retain the obligation to “make an informed, final determination.” Britt v. Simi Valley Unified Sch. Dist., 708 F.2d 452, 454 (9th Cir. 1983), overruled on other grounds, United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 1121–22 (9th Cir. 2003) (en banc). The Magistrates Case 6:22-cv-00382-MK Document 48 Filed 01/17/23 Page 2 of 2 Act does not specify a standard of review in cases where no objections are filed. Ray v. Astrue, 2012 WL 1598239, *1 (D. Or. May 7, 2012). Following the recommendation of the Rules Advisory Committee, I review the F&R for “clear error on the face of the record[.]” Fed. R. Civ. P. 72 advisory committee’s note (1983) (citing Campbell v. United States District Court, 501 F.2d 196, 206 (9th Cir. 1974)); see also United States v. Vonn, 535 U.S. 55, 64 n.6 (2002) (stating that, “[i]n the absence of a clear legislative mandate, the Advisory Committee Notes provide a reliable source of insight into the meaning of” a federal rule). Having reviewed the file of this case, I find no clear error. THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that I ADOPT Judge Mustafa Kasubhai’s F&R (doc. 41). Dated the 17th day of January, 2023. ________/s/Ann Aiken_______ Ann Aiken United States District Judge
