DANNY LEE MALONE, Plaintiff, v. MR. FRANCIS, Defendant.


MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER

On March 4, 2019, the Plaintiff, proceeding pro se, filed an Application to Proceed Without Prepayment of Fees and Costs (Document 1) and a Complaint (Document 2). Subsequently, on March 11, 22019, the Plaintiff filed an Amended Complaint (Document 5).

By Standing Order (Document 3) entered on that date, the matter was referred to the Honorable Omar J. Aboulhosn, United States Magistrate Judge, for submission to this Court of proposed findings of fact and recommendation for disposition, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636.

On June 14, 2019, the Magistrate Judge submitted a Proposed Findings and Recommendation (Document 6) wherein it is recommended that this Court deny the Plaintiff's Application to Proceed Without Prepayment of Fees and Costs, dismiss the Plaintiff's Complaint, and remove this matter from the Court's docket. Objections to the Magistrate Judge's Proposed Findings and Recommendation were due by July 1, 2019, and none were filed by either party.

The Court is not required to review, under a de novo or any other standard, the factual or legal conclusions of the magistrate judge as to those portions of the findings or recommendation to which no objections are addressed. Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 150 (1985). Failure to file timely objections constitutes a waiver of de novo review and a party's right to appeal this Court's Order. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); see also Snyder v. Ridenour, 889 F.2d 1363, 1366 (4th Cir. 1989); United States v. Schronce, 727 F.2d 91, 94 (4th Cir. 1984).

Accordingly, the Court ADOPTS and incorporates herein the findings and recommendation of the Magistrate Judge as contained in the Proposed Findings and Recommendation, and ORDERS that the Plaintiff's Application to Proceed Without Prepayment of Fees and Costs (Document 1) be DENIED, the Plaintiff's Complaint/Amended Complaint (Documents 2 & 5) be DISMISSED, and this matter be REMOVED from the Court's docket.

The Court DIRECTS the Clerk to send a certified copy of this Order to Magistrate Judge Aboulhosn, counsel of record, and any unrepresented party.
