McDonough Magistrate Judge H. Bruce Guyton ORDER On October 24, 2017, United States Magistrate Judge H. Bruce Guyton filed his Report and Recommendation (Doc. 3) pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). Magistrate Judge Guyton recommended that Plaintiff’s complaint be dismissed due to jurisdictional deficiencies based on statute of limitations and judicial immunity. (Doc. 3.) Neither party has filed any objection to Magistrate Judge Guyton’s Report and Recommendation.1 Nevertheless, the Court has conducted a reviewed the Report and Recommendation, as well as the record, and it agrees with Magistrate Judge Guyton’s wellreasoned conclusions. 1 Magistrate Judge Guyton specifically advised Plaintiff that he had fourteen days in which to object to the Report and Recommendation and that failure to do so would waive his right to appeal. (Doc. 3, at 5 n.3); see Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(2); see also Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 148–51 (1985) (noting that “[i]t does not appear that Congress intended to require district court review of a magistrate’s factual or legal conclusions, under a de novo or any other standard, when neither party objects to those findings”). Even taking into account the three additional days for service provided by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 6(d), the period in which Plaintiff could timely file any objections has now expired. Accordingly, the Court will: (1) ACCEPT and ADOPT Magistrate Judge Guyton’s Report and Recommendations (Doc. 3); and (2) DISMISS this case WITHOUT PREJUDICE for jurisdictional deficiencies. AN APPROPRIATE JUDGMENT WILL ENTER. /s/ Travis R. McDonough TRAVIS R. MCDONOUGH UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 2
