BARBARA A. STRICKLAND, Plaintiff, v. R.J. REYNOLDS, Defendant.

Before the Court is United States Magistrate Judge Mac R. McCoy's Report and Recommendation ("R&R"). (Doc. 9). Judge McCoy recommends dismissing the case for failure to comply with the Court's Order (Doc. 8) and failure to prosecute. Plaintiff did not object, and the time to do so passed.

A district judge "may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the findings or recommendations made by the magistrate judge." 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); see also Williams v. Wainwright, 681 F.2d 732, 732 (11th Cir. 1982). Without a specific objection, the judge need not review factual findings de novo. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); see also Garvey v. Vaughn, 993 F.2d 776, 779 n.9 (11th Cir. 1993). But the district court reviews legal conclusions de novo, even without an objection. Cooper-Houston v. S. Ry., 37 F.3d 603, 604 (11th Cir. 1994).

After a careful, complete, and independent examination of the file, the Court accepts and adopts Judge McCoy's R&R in full.

Accordingly, it is now

ORDERED:

1. The Report and Recommendation (Doc. 9) is ACCEPTED and ADOPTED and the findings incorporated herein.

2. This case is DISMISSED for failure to comply with the Court's Order (Doc. 8) and failure to prosecute.

3. The Clerk is DIRECTED to enter judgment, terminate any pending motions and deadlines, and close the file.

DONE and ORDERED in Fort Myers, Florida this 13th day of February, 2020.
