Estep v. Johnson

United States District Court, District of South Carolina, Anderson/Greenwood Division

December 12, 2014

Ronald Estep, #344622, Plaintiff,
v.
Nurse Johnson, individual and in her official capacity; Nurse McQueen, individual and in her official capacity, Defendants.

ORDER

Timothy M. Cain, United States District Judge.

Plaintiff, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, brought this action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. In accordance with 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Local Civ. Rule 73.02, DSC, this matter was referred to a magistrate judge for pretrial handling. Before the court is the magistrate judge’s Report and Recommendation (“Report”), recommending that the court dismiss without prejudice Defendant Nurse McQueen. (ECF No. 42.) Plaintiff has not filed any objections to the Report, and the time to do so has now run.

The Report has no presumptive weight and the responsibility to make a final determination in this matter remains with this court. See Mathews v. Weber, 423 U.S. 261, 270-71 (1976). In the absence of objections, this court is not required to provide an explanation for adopting the Report. See Camby v. Davis, 718 F.2d 198, 199 (4th Cir. 1983). Rather, “in the absence of a timely filed objection, a district court need not conduct a de novo review, but instead must only satisfy itself that there is no clear error on the face of the record in order to accept the recommendation.” Diamond v. Colonial Life & Acc. Ins. Co., 416 F.3d 310, 315 (4th Cir. 2005) (quoting Fed.R.Civ.P. 72 advisory committee’s note).

After a thorough review of the Report and the record in this case, the court adopts the Magistrate Judge's Report (ECF No. 42) and incorporates it herein. It is therefore ORDERED that Defendant Nurse McQueen is DISMISSED without prejudice.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
