Stearns v. Ford Motor Company PDC et al
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION 20 . Signed by Judge Sheryl H. Lipman on 12/5/17. (Lipman, Sheryl)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF TENNESSEE
FORD MOTOR COMPANY, et al.,
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
Before the Court is Magistrate Judge Charmaine G. Claxton’s Report and
Recommendation (“Report”) (ECF No. 20), filed November 8, 2017, recommending dismissal of
Plaintiff’s Complaint for failure to prosecute.
A magistrate judge may submit to a judge of the court proposed findings of fact and
recommendations for involuntary dismissal of an action for failure to prosecute. 28 U.S.C.
§ 636(b)(1)(B). “Within 14 days after being served with a copy of the recommended disposition,
a party may serve and file specific written objections to the proposed findings and
recommendations.” Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(2); see also 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). A district court
reviews de novo only those proposed findings of fact or conclusions of law to which a party
specifically objects. Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(3); see also 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1).
The deadline to object to the Report was November 22, 2017, and Plaintiff filed no
objections. The Court has reviewed the Report for clear error and finds none. Therefore, the
Court ADOPTS the Magistrate Judge’s Report. Plaintiff’s claim against Defendant is
DISMISSED for failure to prosecute.
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 5th day of December, 2017.
