IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF UTAH KENNETH MICHAEL PACIOREK, Plaintiff, v. ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS, Defendant. Case No. 2:23-cv-00904-JNP-DBP Judge Jill N. Parrish Magistrate Judge Dustin B. Pead issued a Report and Recommendation that the court dismiss the plaintiff’s action with prejudice for failure to comply with the court’s orders. Judge Pead notified the plaintiff that a failure to file a timely objection to the recommendation could waive any objections to it. No objection was filed 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). In determining whether the interests of justice require an exception to the waiver rule, the Tenth Circuit has “considered factors such as ‘a pro se litigant’s effort to comply, the force and plausibility of the explanation for his failure to comply, and the importance of the issues raised.’” Duffield v. Jackson, 545 F.3d 1234, 1238 (10th Cir. 2008). In this case, there is no indication that the interests of justice require it to deviate from the waiver rule. Thus, the court finds that all objections are waived and ADOPTS IN FULL the Report and Recommendation. Accordingly, the court ORDERS as follows: 1. The Report and Recommendation, ECF No. 15, is ADOPTED IN FULL. 2. The court DISMISSES this action with prejudice. DATED June 3, 2024. BY THE COURT: ______________________________________ JILL N. PARRISH United States District Judge 2
