GARY WASHINGTON RUCKER,

OGDEN CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT,
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND
Case No. 1:15-cv-00054-JNP
District Judge Jill N. Parrish
Before the court is a Report and Recommendation prepared by Magistrate Judge Oberg
(ECF No. 68). On December 29, 2020, the above-named Defendants moved the court to dismiss
Plaintiff’s action for failure to prosecute, or in the alternative to compel discovery answers and
amend the scheduling order in this matter. In her Report and Recommendation, Judge Oberg
recommends denying Defendants’ motion to dismiss the action. 1 Judge Oberg notified the parties
that a failure to timely object to her recommendation could constitute a waiver of further objection.
No party filed an objection within the allotted time.
Because no party objected to the Report and Recommendation, any argument that it was in
error has been waived. See United States v. One Parcel of Real Prop., 73 F.3d 1057, 1060 (10th
Cir. 1996). The court will decline to apply the waiver rule only if “the interests of justice so
dictate.” Moore v. United States, 950 F.2d 656, 659 (10th Cir. 1991). The court has reviewed the
In a separate order (ECF No. 69), Judge Oberg granted Defendants’ motion in the alternative to
compel discovery and modify the scheduling order.
Report and Recommendation and concludes it is not clearly erroneous. Thus, the court finds that
the interests of justice do not warrant deviation from the waiver rule and ADOPTS IN FULL the
Report and Recommendation.
Accordingly, the court ORDERS as follows:
1. The Report and Recommendation (ECF No. 68) is ADOPTED IN FULL.
2. Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss is DENIED.
DATED June 4, 2021.
