United States District Court, D. Colorado
July 28, 2015
BRUCE ERVIN, Plaintiff,
LISA GREGORY, Defendant.
PHILIP A. BRIMMER United States District Judge
This matter is before the Court on the Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge Michael E. Hegarty (the “Recommendation”) filed on July 1, 2015 [Docket No. 154]. The magistrate judge recommends that the Court grant the Motion for Summary Judgment [Docket No. 117] filed by defendant Lisa Gregory and deny as moot Ms. Gregory’s Motion to Dismiss [Docket No. 116]. The Recommendation states that objections to the Recommendation must be filed within fourteen days after its service on the parties. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C). The Recommendation was served on July 1, 2015. No party has objected to the Recommendation.
In the absence of an objection, the district court may review a magistrate judge’s recommendation under any standard it deems appropriate. See Summers v. Utah, 927 F.2d 1165, 1167 (10th Cir. 1991); see also Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 150 (1985) (“[i]t does not appear that Congress intended to require district court review of a magistrate’s factual or legal conclusions, under a de novo or any other standard, when neither party objects to those findings”). In this matter, the Court has reviewed the Recommendation to satisfy itself that there is “no clear error on the face of the record.”Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b), Advisory Committee Notes. Based on this review, the Court has concluded that the Recommendation is a correct application of the facts and the law. Accordingly, it is
ORDERED that the Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge [Docket No. 154] is ACCEPTED. It is further
ORDERED that defendant Lisa Gregory’s Motion for Summary Judgment [Docket No. 117] is GRANTED. It is further
ORDERED that defendant Lisa Gregory’s Motion to Dismiss [Docket No. 116] is DENIED as moot. It is further
ORDERED that plaintiff’s Eighth Amendment claim against defendant Lisa Gregory is dismissed with prejudice. It is further
ORDERED that, within 14 days after the entry of judgment, defendants may have their costs by filing a bill of costs with the Clerk of the Court. It is further
ORDERED that this case is dismissed in its entirety.
