FOR THE DISTRICT OF SOUTH CAROLINA

Warden Davis, Lieutenant Chestnut,
Sergeant Wright, Ms. D. Albert, and
C/A No. 5:17-cv-02479-DCC
OPINION AND ORDER
Plaintiff, a State prisoner, filed this action against Defendants, alleging, inter alia,
violations of his constitutional rights. In accordance with 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and Local
Civil Rule 73.02 (D.S.C.), this matter was referred to a United States Magistrate Judge
for pre-trial handling. The Magistrate Judge issued a Report and Recommendation
(“Report”) on March 23, 2018, recommending that the Court dismiss this case for failure
to prosecute. ECF No. 42. No objections were filed.
The Magistrate Judge makes only a recommendation to this Court.
recommendation has no presumptive weight, and the responsibility to make a final
determination remains with this Court. Mathews v. Weber, 423 U.S. 261, 270–71. The
Court is charged with making a de novo determination of only those portions of the Report
that have been specifically objected to, and the Court may accept, reject, or modify the
Report, in whole or in part. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). In the absence of specific objections,
the Court reviews the matter only for clear error. See Diamond v. Colonial Life & Accident
Ins. Co., 416 F.3d 310, 315 (4th Cir. 2005) (“[I]n 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.’”
(quoting Fed. R. Civ. P. 72 advisory committee’s note to 1983 addition)).
Having reviewed the record, the applicable law, and the findings and
recommendations of the Magistrate Judge, the Court finds no clear error and adopts the
Report by reference in this Order. Therefore, the case is DISMISSED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
