CORRECTED ORDER AND
Case No. 2:16-cv-780
Judge Tena Campbell
On March 29, 2017, United States Magistrate Judge Warner denied
Plaintiff Carolyn Ford’s motion to compel an inspection of Defendants’ property. 1
Ms. Ford objected to Judge Warner’s order.
This is a corrected version of the order entered on May 18, 2017. That order referred to Judge
Warner’s order by the wrong date. This corrected version resolves that inaccuracy.
Rule 72(a) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure requires a district court
to “modify or set aside” a magistrate judge’s nondispositive order “that is clearly
erroneous or is contrary to law.” Under this standard, the court must affirm the
magistrate judge’s order unless the court “‘is left with the definite and firm
conviction that a mistake has been committed.’” Ocelot Oil Corp. v. Sparrow
Indust., 847 F.2d 1458, 1464 (10th Cir. 1988) (quoting United States v. United
States Gypsum Co., 333 U.S. 364, 395 (1948).
The court has reviewed the March 29, 2017, order, the briefing on Ms.
Ford’s objection, and the relevant caselaw. The court does not find the order to
be clearly erroneous or contrary to law. As a result, the court DENIES Ms.
Ford’s objection (ECF No. 29).
DATED this 30th day of May, 2017.
BY THE COURT:
U.S. District Court Judge
