As noted by the Fifth Circuit, “[t]he advisory committee‟s note to Rule 72(b) states that, „[w]hen no timely objection is filed,
the [district] court need only satisfy itself that there is no clear error on the face of the record in order to accept the
recommendation.‟” Douglas v. United Servs. Auto. Ass‟n, 79 F.3d 1415, 1420 (5th Cir. 1996) (quoting FED. R. CIV. P. 72(b)
advisory committee‟s note (1983)) superceded by statute on other grounds by 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1), as stated in ACS Recovery
Servs., Inc. v. Griffin, No. 11-40446, 2012 WL 1071216, at *7 n.5 (5th Cir. Apr. 2, 2012).
