Case No. 6:20-CV-607-JDK-KNM
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION OF UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
This case was referred to United States Magistrate Judge K. Nicole Mitchell pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636. On November 19, 2020, the Magistrate Judge issued a Report and Recommendation (Docket No. 5), recommending that the action be dismissed with prejudice for purposes of in forma pauperis proceedings pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g).
This Court reviews the findings and conclusions of the Magistrate Judge de novo only if a party objects within fourteen days of service of the Report and Recommendation. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). In conducting a de novo review, the Court examines the entire record and makes an independent assessment under the law. Douglass v. United Servs. Auto. Ass'n, 79 F.3d 1415, 1430 (5th Cir. 1996) (en banc), superseded on other grounds by statute, 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) (extending the time to file objections from ten to fourteen days). Here, Plaintiff did not file objections in the prescribed period. The Court therefore reviews the Magistrate Judge's findings for clear error or abuse of discretion and reviews her legal conclusions to determine whether they are contrary to law. See United States v. Wilson, 864 F.2d 1219, 1221 (5th Cir. 1989) (holding that, if no objections to a Magistrate Judge's Report are filed, the standard of review is "clearly erroneous, abuse of discretion and contrary to law").
Having reviewed the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendations, the Court finds no clear error or abuse of discretion and no conclusions contrary to law. The Court therefore adopts the Report and Recommendation of the United States Magistrate Judge (Docket No. 5) as the findings of this Court. Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED that the Magistrate Judge's Report (Docket No. 5) is ADOPTED;
ORDERED that the complaint is DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE for purposes of in forma pauperis proceedings pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g). Plaintiff may resume his lawsuit if he pays the entire filing fee of $400 within thirty days after the entry of the final judgment; and
ORDERED that all motions not previously ruled on are DENIED. The Clerk of Court is directed to CLOSE this case.
So ORDERED and SIGNED this 4th day of January, 2021.
