FOR THE DISTRICT OF SOUTH CAROLINA
Vernon L. Blanding,

C/A No. 5:13-1102-TMC
Plaintiff, a detention center detainee proceeding pro se, filed this action pursuant
to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. This matter is before the court for review of the Report and
Recommendation of the United States Magistrate Judge Kaymani D. West made in
accordance with 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Local Civil Rule 73.02 for the District of
The Magistrate Judge makes only a recommendation to this court.
recommendation has no presumptive weight.
The responsibility to make a final
determination remains with this court. See Mathews v. Weber, 423 U.S. 261, 270-71
(1976). The court is charged with making a de novo determination of those portions of
the Report and Recommendation to which specific objections are made, and the court
may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the Magistrate Judge’s
recommendation or recommit the matter with instructions. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1).
Plaintiff was advised of his right to file objections to the Report and
Recommendation. (ECF No. 18 at 8).
However, Plaintiff filed no objections to the
Report and Recommendation. In the absence of objections to the Magistrate Judge’s
Report and Recommendation, this court is not required to provide an explanation for
adopting the recommendation. See Camby v. Davis, 718 F.2d 198, 199 (4th Cir. 1983).
Rather, “in the absence of a timely filed objection, a district court need not conduct a de
novo review, but instead must ‘only satisfy itself that there is no clear error on the face
of the record in order to accept the recommendation.’” Diamond v. Colonial Life & Acc.
Ins. Co., 416 F.3d 310, 315 (4th Cir. 2005) (quoting Fed. R. Civ. P. 72 advisory
After a thorough review of the Report and Recommendation and the record in
this case, the court adopts the Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation (ECF
No. 18) and incorporates it herein. It is therefore ORDERED that the Complaint is
DISMISSED without prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
