This Court ordered that the case be referred to the United States Magistrate Judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 636(b)(1) and (3) and the Amended Order for the Adoption of Local Rules for the Assignment of Duties to United States Magistrate Judges. Howe has filed a motion seeking issuance of a temporary restraining order. On February 3, 2010, the Magistrate Judge issued a Report recommending that the request for a temporary restraining order be denied. Howe received a copy of this Report on February 9, 2010, but has filed no objections thereto; accordingly, he is barred from de novo review by the district judge of those findings, conclusions, and recommendations and, except upon grounds of plain error, from appellate review of the unobjected-to factual findings and legal conclusions accepted and adopted by the district court.
