UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
MIDDLE DISTRICT OF TENNESSEE
JAMES NATHAN CARTER,
Case No. 3:16-cv-02088
HON. TERRENCE G. BERG
HON. JEFFERY S. FRENSLEY
SONYA TROUTT, et al.,
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT
AND RECOMMENDATION (DKT. 41)
This matter is before the Court on Magistrate Judge Jeffery S.
Frensley’s June 23, 2017 Report and Recommendation (Dkt. 41), recommending that Defendants’ motion for summary judgment (Dkt. 36) be
granted and that this action be dismissed with prejudice.
The Court has carefully reviewed the Magistrate Judge’s Report
and Recommendation, and finds that it is well-reasoned and supported
by the relevant law. The law provides that either party may serve and
file written objections “[w]ithin fourteen days after being served with a
copy” of the report and recommendations. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). The district court will make a “de novo determination of those portions of the
report . . . to which objection is made.” Id. Neither party filed any objections to Magistrate Judge Frensley’s Report and Recommendation, and
the time to do so has expired. Where, as here, neither party objects to
the Report and Recommendation, the District Court is not obligated to
independently review the record. See Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 14952 (1985). The Court will, therefore, accept the Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation of June 23, 2017, as this Court’s findings of
fact and conclusions of law.
Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED that Magistrate Judge Frensley’s Report and Recommendation (Dkt. 41) of June 23, 2017 is ACCEPTED and ADOPTED. It is FURTHER ORDERED that Defendants’ motion for summary judgment (Dkt. 36) is GRANTED. This case
is hereby DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE.
