CIV-S-08-0227 LKK EFB PS.
April 8, 2008
On February 1, 2008, the magistrate judge filed findings and recommendations herein which were served on the parties and which contained notice that any objections to the findings and recommendations were to be filed within ten days. Plaintiff filed objections on February 8, 2008, and they were considered by the undersigned.
Plaintiff also filed an Amended Notice of Removal of Civil Action to Federal Court on February 8, 2008, representing his continued, improvident efforts to remove this action to federal court.
This court reviews de novo those portions of the proposed findings of fact to which objection has been made. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); McDonnell Douglas Corp. v. Commodore Business Machines, 656 F.2d 1309, 1313 (9th Cir. 1981), cert, denied, 455 U.S. 920 (1982). As to any portion of the proposed findings of fact to which no objection has been made, the court assumes its correctness and decides the motions on the applicable law. See Orand v. United States, 602 F.2d 207, 208 (9th Cir. 1979). The magistrate judge's conclusions of law are reviewed de novo. See Britt v. Simi Valley Unified School Dist., 708 F.2d 452, 454 (9th Cir. 1983).
The court has reviewed the applicable legal standards and, good cause appearing, concludes that it is appropriate to adopt the proposed Findings and Recommendations in full. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that:
1. The proposed Findings and Recommendations filed February 1, 2008, are ADOPTED;
2. This case is remanded to the Superior Court of the State of California in and for the County of Sacramento; and
3. The Clerk is directed to close this case.
