UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
MIDDLE DISTRICT OF TENNESSEE
BOBBY D. GREEN,
Case Number 15-00865
Honorable David M. Lawson
Magistrate Judge Jeffery S. Frensley
ALBERT U. TIECHE, ALEX GREEN
MIDDLE SCHOOL POLLING PRECINCT,
and BORDEAUX LIBRARY,
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
AND DISMISSING CASE WITHOUT PREJUDICE
Presently before the Court is the report issued on March 4, 2017 by Magistrate Judge Jeffery
S. Frensley pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b), recommending that this case be dismissed without
prejudice for want of prosecution. Under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 72(b)(2), the parties to
this action had fourteen days from the date of service of the report to object to and seek review of
the recommendation. No objections have been filed thus far. The parties’ failure to file objections
to the report and recommendation waives any further right to appeal. Smith v. Detroit Fed’n of
Teachers Local 231, 829 F.2d 1370, 1373 (6th Cir. 1987). Likewise, the failure to object to the
magistrate judge’s report releases the Court from its duty to independently review the matter.
Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985). However, the Court agrees with the findings and
conclusions of the magistrate judge.
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the magistrate judge’s report and recommendation [dkt.
#27] is ADOPTED and the case is DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE for want of
It is further ORDERED that the plaintiff’s motion for an extension [dkt. #24] and motion
to defer response to order [dkt. #25] are DENIED as moot.
