United States District Court, D. Colorado
January 21, 2015
MEDESET WORKALEMAHU, Plaintiff,
HERITAGE CLUB, Defendant.
RAYMOND P. MOORE, District Judge.
This matter is before the Court on the Recommendation of Magistrate Judge Michael E. Hegarty ("Recommendation") (ECF No. 34) to grant Defendant Brookdale Senior Living Communities, Inc.'s ("Brookdale") motion to compel arbitration (ECF No. 34). Also, Magistrate Judge Hegarty recommended the Court stay or close administratively the matter. (ECF No. 34 at 4.) The Recommendation is incorporated herein by reference. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B); Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b).
The Recommendation advised the parties that specific written objections were due within fourteen days after being served with a copy of the Recommendation. (ECF No. 34 at 1 n.1.) Despite this advisement, neither party has to date filed an objection to the Recommendation. ( See generally Dkt.)
The Court concludes that Judge Hegarty's analysis was thorough and sound, and that there is no clear error on the record's face. See Fed.R.Civ.P. 72 Advisory Committee's Note (holding that "[w]hen no timely objection is filed, the court need only satisfy itself that there is no clear error on the face of the record in order to accept the recommendation"); see also Summers v. Utah, 927 F.2d 1165, 1167 (10th Cir. 1991) ("In the absence of timely objection, the district court may review a magistrate's report under any standard it deems appropriate."). The Court, therefore, adopts the Recommendation.
In accordance with the foregoing, the Court:
(1) ADOPTS the Magistrate Judge's Recommendation (ECF No. 34) in its entirety;
(2) GRANTS, in part, Defendant's Motion to Compel Arbitration (ECF No. 14), to wit, the Court GRANTS the request to compel arbitration of Plaintiff's underlying claims and the Court DENIES the request to stay the matter;
(3) ORDERS the Clerk of the Court, pursuant to Local Rule 41.2, to ADMINISTRATIVELY CLOSE the matter subject to reopening for good cause; and
(4) ORDERS the parties to file a joint-status report within ten days after the issuance of an arbitration decision.
